Bob Murphy shared this project on last week’s Adafruit Show & Tell

Day & Night Sampler – a raspberry pi mpd mini boombox
.

This project had its origin a couple of years ago. I received a nice tin box with a plastic window on the front. The window just screamed out for a special display project of some kind. The box had “Day and Night Sampler” (D&NS) embossed on the front. Thus, the name.

I decided this would be a good box to hold a small prototype of a boombox that I wanted to build, complete with Vacuum Fluorescent Display (VFD), a super-nice glowy character display. You could use a character LCD or OLED display instead of the VFD, but you’ll have to figure out how to adapt the python scripts for your particular display.

Features:

  • VFD character display 20 chars x 2 lines
  • Raspberry Pi attached to small amp through USB Sound card
  • IR Remote Control: Volume +/-, Playlist up/down/change, etc.
  • Internet WiFi Streaming of stations or play from stored playlists
  • View Now Playing Song Info, Date/Time, or Weather

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.
