“Get underwater with this incredible build. Using LEGO, a syringe, a pressure sensor and a wireless communication board this build can head into (and underneath) the water. Sean McManus has built an incredible Raspberry Pi Radio that doesn’t just play songs, it uses Raspberry Pi smarts to create a virtual DJ. The disc jockey uses voice technology to interject and announce tracks, and even plays jingles and stings. The MagPi’s very own Rob Zwetsloot has created this incredible 3D-printed ghostbusting vacuum from Luigi’s Mansion 3. This month Rob walks us through the build process.”
