Here’s a project for NPR superfans. They’re out there, and they’d love this: a custom-made NPR Radio. via Lifehacker
If you’re an avid listener of NPR, you already know that the NPR One app, which essentially shuffles NPR shows at random, is a fantastic way to listen to the variety of different shows on the network. If you want to build a dedicated device just for NPR, you can do so pretty easily using a Raspberry Pi Zero and a short bit of code from GitHub. Of course, Adafruit being what it is, they’ve also tossed in a custom wood case, laser etched plastic lid, speakres, and button controls. The GitHub code’s the real backbone here though, so if you’re interested in making one for yourself, that’s the best place to start.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
