Raspberry Pi Internet Radio Player Tutorial @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi

This tutorial from Spencer Organ shows you how to build an internet radio using a Raspberry Pi and an Adafruit PiTFT 2.8″ TFT+Touchscreen for Raspberry Pi!

(via recantha)

This project is based around the 2.8” touch screen from adafruit.

The full details of building and setting up the touch screen can be found on the adafruit website here. This must be done before trying to use the radio!

This project creates an internet streaming radio for the Raspberry Pi using the 2.8” touchscreen. This does not use the x interface and makes use of Pygame.

PiTFT – Assembled 320×240 2.8″ TFT+Touchscreen for Raspberry Pi: Is this not the cutest little display for the Raspberry Pi? It features a 2.8″ display with 320×240 16-bit color pixels and a resistive touch overlay. The plate uses the high speed SPI interface on the Pi and can use the mini display as a console, X window port, displaying images or video etc. Best of all it plugs right in on top! (read more)

  1. Nice one!
    I did something similar when I got my tft
    I’ve made my code available too, I think we have both done slightly different things and by combining them it would make it even better!
