Steampunk Pi Jukebox Running Google Music #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Here is a super awesome build from Spyrul on Instructables. This maker converted an vintage radio into a one-of-a-kind jukebox.
I have seen several different variations of different makers creating some really awesome Pi based radios and jukeboxes. I’ve also been hauling around my Great-Grandparents tube radio for about a dozen years with the intent of revitalizing it in some fashion. Here’s how I took the interesting journey, and hope it will inspire you to to do the same.
This Instructable is part hardware and software, and was a pile of fun to do. If you have any questions please reach out, but I should add I’m not much of a software guy. If you do run into issues Pi side I may not be the best resource – but I’ll try! I cannot offer any guidance on Asbestos beyond again, do your own research and take precautions.
