How to Hack a Yak Bak

I am trying to record my voice for my "Start Here" robot and I thought a Yak Bak would be a good option (I am a teenager).

Does anyone know how to hack a Yak Bak?

Any help is greatly appreciated!!

Thanks

Thanks for the help guys!

I went out to the store and bought a greeting card that had the sound recording capabilities on it. birdmun, you mention replacing the switches with a pair of transistors and a resistor for the base of each transistor. Can you please elaborate just a little bit? (i am pretty new to this sound stuff). Also, can you guys please help me with how to connect it with my Picaxe board (that i used for the robot).

I could also give you a picture of the module and my robot!

Thanks for everything!

because I am currently only book smart. I don't have any real world knowledge. Theoretically you should be able to get a pair of standard NPN transistors, a 1K resistor for each transistor and then connect an output pin to a resistor, from the resistor to the base of a transistor. The collector of the transistor needs to be connected to the side of the switch that goes to ground and then the emitter connects to the load.

I am basing my information off of this site.

I hope some of the more knowledgeable regulars can set you straight.

You could use any generic voice recorder.

let you record 10 seconds or so worth of audio. As they are only, I believe, a board and a couple of switches, you should be able to replace the switches with a pair of transistors and a resistor for the base of each transistor.

Just my 2 cents.

A quick search netted this module.
