Raspberry pi gone vintage

The project is a vintage radio shell with a raspberry pi and external speakers inside of it. This project came from my need to have a tasteful raspberry pi enclosure without it looking like a raspberry pi case. I also had the need for some medium quality stereo speakers for my room so I incorporated both into this project. This project was completely made of reclaimed electronics. Step 1: The materials I us ...

1979 Bang & Olufsen Raspberry Pi Internet Radio

This is a 1979 Bang & Olufsen Beocord 1500 cassette recorder that I've converted into a standalone Raspberry Pi internet radio. The analogue VU meters are driven by the Pi via a DAC (Digital to Analogue Converter) circuit, with the current time, station and track displayed on an Adafruit negative RGB display, visible through what was originally the cassette window. It's completely controlled with the or ...

Pi in the Sky transceiver – Raspberry Pi Frequency Synthesiser (Part 1)

Method 1 The simplest way to generate a frequency is to apply a voltage to a crystal, the piezo-electric effect will take over and the crystal with resonant at a particular frequency. However, as this was going to be a multiband, multimode transceiver; crystals could not really be used. The range over which a well designed crystal oscillator circuit can be pulled, whilst maintaining stability, is roughly ±2 ...

Raspberry Pi Temperature Logger via Radio

This project makes use of a raspberry pi, to read the temperature of several radio sensors, and store them on a Sqlite database. The same raspberry pi is used to serve webpages with the graph of the acquired temperatures. See live demo here. Step 1: Install hardware on the Pi The first thing to do is to install the radio receiver (Ciseco Slice of Radio) on the Raspberry Pi. See the Photos. Step 2: Confirm t ...

Radio Caroline on the RaspberryPi

The Swinging 60's This is an appropriate label for the 1960's for 2 reasons: (1) it was a decade of great change, especially regarding popular music & fashion, (2) You have to now be in your 60's to have experienced it as a 1960's teenager.
