As you may know, I love making different internet radios with Raspberry Pis! This week I’ve been rediscovering the Pimoroni Flotilla modular physical computing devices which I backed on Kickstarter a few years ago, and as my first Python project with Flotilla it made sense to… make a radio with lovely controls.
Here’s what I used:
A Raspberry Pi 3 with updated Jesse Raspbian installed and an internet connection
A TV as a display and audio output (you can use powered speakers or headphones just as easily for the audio output).
A Pimoroni Flotilla Dock, Touch buttons, Slider, 8×8 Matrix display and rotary Dial – though you could do a bare bones version with just the Touch buttons.
