RadioGlobe: search over 2000 web radio stations #PiDay #RaspberryPi @Raspberry_Pi
RadioGlobe is an interactive tool to access over 2000 stations (and counting), from all over the world.
Part of the magic is the the tension between familiarity and the unfamiliarity: It’s both shocking how many radio stations play Western pop music, but then with a turn of the jog wheel, you find an alternatives (in the same location) – and you navigate from Boosh FM‘s Drum & Bass, to listening to a native dialect of New Zealand. It’s frankly, mind-blowing, even though the technology has been around for years.
The project is Open Source. The GitHub repository is open to anyone who would like to evolve the code to make the RadioGlobe even better.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
