HOW TO – Make a Wireless Music Veto Button for your Office – Exercise your right to skip songs in the office! @ The Adafruit Learning System.

How many times have you suffered at the hand of your co-worker that plays Spotify radio in the office? Wouldn’t it be great if you could simply veto their song that’s playing and go on to the next?

This project creates a wireless veto button for music. The button is self-powered and can be recharged using a standard USB cable. Simply pair the Bluefruit EZ-Key to the computer playing the music, configure the software and you’re all set to “cast your vote” and skip to the next song.

This project is specific for the Mac (because of AppleScript’s ability to control apps) but could be translated to work with Windows if your music app can listen to media-control keypresses (like ‘fast forward’).
