RadioGlobe: Navigate the Internet Radio World With This Raspberry Pi Project @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi
Maker Jude Pullen combined a globe, some 3D printed parts, and a Raspberry Pi to make RadioGlobe. By spinning the globe, the user can tune into one of over 2000 international internet stations. Here’s more from the Pullen at Instructables:
This Instructables will show you how to build a ‘RadioGlobe’, which has 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.
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!
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.
