Alguém construiu o detector de palavrões do Homem Demolidor

Do departamento de projectos completamente inúteis (mas não me importava nada de ter), chega-nos o detector de palavrões – aquele do Homem Demolidor, com o  Stallone, que cuspia multas cada vez que alguém dizia alguma obscenidade.

O projecto, open source, foi desenvolvido pelo utilizador tdicola (Tony DiCola) do site hackaday.io:

This project is inspired by the movie Demolition Man and the future society it envisions.  The movie is set in the 2030’s when crime has been completely eradicated inside a tightly controlled society.  Swearing is a violation of the ‘verbal morality statues’ and its enforcement is done through monitoring devices mounted in each room.  These verbal morality statute monitors are a running joke in the movie as characters use profanity and trigger violations.  This project is an attempt to recreate the verbal morality statute monitor from Demolition Man.

For hardware, this project uses a Raspberry Pi model B running the latest version of the Raspbian OS.  The model B Pi is preferred because it has multiple USB ports (good for connecting both a wifi chip, and USB microphone), however the project will likely also work on a model A Pi.  Connected to the Raspberry Pi are a USB microphone, amplifier and speaker, thermal printer, a SPST toggle switch, and some red LEDs.

O autor publicou um vídeo a mostrar o projecto onde se pode ver, por instantes, o detector em funcionamento:

É um bom dispositivo para instalar na casa de banho, pelo menos para quem não usa as três conchas.
