We like yelling at our digital home assistant thing to skip the track it’s currently playing. It feels very Star Trek. Sometimes it’s more dramatic to wave the music away – just like with the Wavepad.
This radio reads out your notifications from a variety of services. It doesn’t have an old-fashioned news bulletin voice, but it’s the spirit that counts.
Want to listen to one song, and one song only? Close a contact on this Raspberry Pi project for just that. Simple.
Martin Mander made this with the AIY Projects kit that came with The MagPi #57. We love the meta idea of how this has been repurposed.
Feel like a sitcom character and have some slapping bass tunes play as you walk through the door. What’s the deal with theme tunes, anyway?
This is a 1970 Flirt radio that upcycling maestro Martin Mander has turned into a Raspberry Pi-powered internet radio, without sacrificing much of its wonderful aesthetics.
Using a light tripwire to sense where you are, (carefully) dancing up and down these stairs should help with your scales and arpeggios.
As well as being a lot of fun, this is a neat little conductivity experiment so you know how capacitive touch works. With a little beat added to it.
This official Raspberry Pi project uses an ultrasonic distance sensor – something you mostly find on robots – to create a theremin sound as you move your hand through it.
Using sound to detect distance is pretty standard tech, but it always helps to make it easier. This sodar project helps you do that.
