Make a Rain Box with Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

From Instructables user Adum24:

I find the sound of rain really soothing, and wanted a device to just play rain sounds for me. I figured the Raspberry Pi would be perfect for this. So I wrote a Python script that selects a random number, and, based on the number, selects a rain sound to play. After that, I stuck it in a hobby project box from Radioshack, wired with some old speakers and it was done! Soothing rain sounds for me! What’s great about this setup is that the Raspberry Pi is still usable even though this script runs at start up, so you can have rain running while you work with your Pi if you’d rather not have it in a box. Also, this is a pretty cheap project, so its great for a weekend project that doesn’t break the bank!
