The Raspberry Pi came to revolutionize the world of makers alike. Unlike Arduino, the Raspberry Pi runs a whole Linux distribution on it (Raspbian) and allows you to work with software in a much higher level. You can use pretty much any programming language to create whatever you want. You can even use its graphic interface, and still connect with low-level components through its I/O pins.
This tutorial turns a tiny Raspberry Pi Zero W (with built-in wireless) into an audio streamer, using Adafruit’s I2S microphone (also very small) and good’ol VLC to create a live audio stream using RTP.
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!
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.
