Few things are better than kicking back on the couch and streaming your favorite album wirelessly to your stereo from your phone. It’s a remarkably easy thing to do with AirPlay, but if you don’t want to pay for Apple’s solutions, a Raspberry Pi does the job remarkably well.
Check out the video above for a quick demo of what this project entails, and what you’ll get with the final product. With a few tweaks to your initial Raspberry Pi installation, you can turn it into an amazing little device that can receive audio from any AirPlay-compatible device. That means wireless streaming to any speakers you have in the house.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
