Retro AIY Keypad Phone @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi

New tech from old tech. Converted an old Tiffany Coke touch phone into a Google Home using a Raspberry Pi and the Google AIY source code.

Although these instructions are primarily for the Tiffany Coke phone that I used in this build it should apply to almost any retro touch pad phone.

After the phone is opened we remove all the parts that we are not going to need. These include the old circuit board, the led light, the speaker and one of the weights. I had to also break a few of the plastic screw holders to free up space for the raspberry pi, case and wires. I don’t have a pic of this step but it really is just freeing up space in the old phone for the pi. The next step is to remove the screws for the top half of the case and remove the cardboard separator.

The keypad is made up of two parts. The first is that actual board and the other are the esthetics and the buttons. Lay the buttons face down and remove the 4 screws. Carefully remove the back board so that we can see what wires do what.
