Billy Bass Hack

Posted June 5, 2012 by Chris

“This is a modification to the Gemmy Toys Billy Big Mouth Bass. This hack is modeled after Marsette Vona’s famous Embedded Billy Bass Hack. Marsette’s original circuit was based on an 8051 type of chip. I have modified the project to use a PIC16F819 microcontroller and a common LM386 audio amp because I am more familiar with these parts. I considered this a great learning project.”
