3D Printed Darth Vader Speaker #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
With summer in full swing, you might want to get out and party in the sun. Whether it’s a picnic or a bike ride, music makes it better. Why not make this cool Darth Vader speaker shared by CJA3D on instructables.
If you are big fan of Star Wars movies, follow the steps below to make your very own Darth Vader Speaker. As part of the build we are going to use a Raspberry Pi Zero W as the heart of the project, and an I2S class D mono amplifier and 4 ohms speaker, to play our favourite tunes !!
In my case, I have a mp3 songs that I have been collecting over the years, which I have download to the SD card on my Pi and running a software called Mopidy , which is an extensible music server written in Python. And you can play songs using a web browser on your mobile/tablet/laptop as you see in the video.
In addition, if you have your song collection online on Spotify, SoundCloud or Google Play Music you an install an mopidy extension to play songs from your collection in addition to the songs on the Pi.
