Build an Internet Radio with Raspberry Pi Zero W
As time marches on, an increasing amount of radio is available over the Internet. However many people are not happy with commercial internet radios, and thus design their own.
One example of this is by Hans Hansiart whose solution is easy to build, but also very easy to use. The Pi Zero W works in a headless configuration and is thus set up using another device on the local area network such as a PC or smartphone. You can even set up the WiFi access details for the radio, so it can be used in various locations without uploading new firmware.
This has to be the closest to a good commercial unit we've seen in a long while, and it can also be an MP3 player - check it out in the following video:
Outstanding. You can find complete details in Hans' project page.
And if you're interested in doing this yourself, PMD Way has a you covered with a wide range of parts, such as:
- Raspberry Pi Zero W Kits
- 2004 LCD modules
- DC to DC converters
- PCM5102 modules
- prototyping PCBs
- and much more...
