Deadpool’s Disembodied Head Shares a Catchphrase When It Holds Your Gear

My daughter Julia is a huge fan of Marvel and DC superhero movies and TV shows. She has introduced me to Guardians of the Galaxy and Deadpool. When she graduated from High School this year her brother bought her a pair of wireless headphones as a gift.


I decided she needed a stylish place to store them when not in use so… one hollow mannequin head (eBay), leather mask (eBay), Adafruit sound FX and amplifier boards, an Arduino, and LEDs and you get….The Animated Deadpool Headphone holder. Place the headphones on the mannequin and a switch in the head turns on the LEDs and plays one of ten audio clips I downloaded from the movie. I used all off the shelf components, but could have eliminated the Arduino if I had more time.
