How To Make A Wireless Song Veto Button #AdafruitWeekendProject
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’)
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.
