The 20-sided die — or “d20” as it’s known to tabletop gamers — is an icon of geek culture. In this project we’ll 3D-print a jumbo d20 and outfit it with electronics…because that’s how we roll at Adafruit.
The talking d20 is fun and good for a laugh…though with electronics inside it won’t be 100% perfectly random or balanced…so it’s not suitable for all gaming situations and doesn’t replace your trusty dice bag. Think of it as a geek version of those “executive decision maker” toys.
The code and sounds are completely customizable. For example, you could load each of the 20 faces with the names of local lunch spots and use it to pick the day’s destination.
Adafruit was founded in 2005 by MIT engineer, Limor "Ladyada" Fried. Her goal was to create the best place online for learning electronics and making the best designed products for makers of all ages and skill levels. Since then Adafruit has grown to over 25 employees in the heart of NYC. We've expanded our offerings to include tools, equipment and electronics that Limor personally selects, tests and approves before going in to the Adafruit store. We pride ourselves on having great prices, the best customer service, technical support and fast shipping. We hope we can assist you on your journey of learning - At Adafruit we celebrate engineering happiness!
