Photo Of Tools And A Old Telephone

I agreed to take on the challenge of hacking old telephones for a new exhibition at Borgarsyssel Museum. I’m adding an Adafruit 2133, Sound FX Audio Processor Application Board to the phones so that I can play an audio file when a visitor picks up the phone.

A total of ten telephones will be available for public use. In a few posts, I’ll give you an update on how things are going.
