We were tasked by a UK television program The Gadget Show to come up with a design for a simple one day hack to convert a standard analogue radio into an internet radio. They would be building it on camera but we had to build a prototype first to make sure the design would work. It is this prototype we have based this Instructable on.
Due to time constraints and to keeps things simple for people who may attempt to build this at home we opted to use off the shelf modules (everything we used is available from Amazon) were ever possible. The heart of the device is of course a Raspberry Pi.
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.
