NPR One Radio With Raspberry Pi Zero #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
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!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
