Pico W plaything
I’ve seen a lot of tutorials that show you how to switch and LED on and off or host a webpage on a Pico W to toggle an LED on and off, so I thought I’d take this to the next level.
Big Mouth Billy Bass
I bought an original Big Mouth Billy Bass from Ebay a couple of months ago and its been sitting on my shelf ever since. I decided this would be the perfect robot project for the Pico W - to hack the Big Mouth and make it move using a Pico, and then make this controllable via a webpage.
Someone asked if i would make this accessible over the Internet, so a couple of clicks later and i had purchased the domain big.mouthpi.co (Big Mouth Pico).
To protect my home IP address, and also prevent denial of service attacks I also setup Cloudflare to add an extra layer between the domain name url and the actual Pico W on my home network.
If you want to access the Pico W yourself and give it a go - head over to https://mouthpi.co and click some buttons!
If you want to download the code and have a play with it yourself you can download it from https://www.github.com/kevinmcaleer/bigmouth_wifi
If you want to know more about this project you can watch the Livestream, recorded on 10 July 2022 over on my YouTube channel.
