Make Your Own Nokia 5110 Raspberry Pi Add-on Board

Who remembers the Nokia 5110? If you're too young to have had one, it was a great phone - a bit of a game changer some might say. The battery lasted a decade, it was tough as nails and one of the first mobiles to include swappable faceplates and the infamous 'Snake' game. 1998 was a long time ago now, so even the most vintage retro sorts aren't rocking a 5110 anymore.

This configuration gives me a great deal of utility ...

Raspberry Pi in Rotary Phone

I found an old Western Electric rotary phone in my attic. It's really an amazing piece of hardware. It seems to work fine several decades after its construction despite whatever abuse it took before ending up in my attic. However, I don't currently need a rotary phone. So I decided to put a Raspberry Pi inside it. I decided to make it an MP3 player that's simple and robust for my daughter, but I guess it ca ...
