Podcast-player-in-a-container is an approach to partner a physical article (a plastic card) with a potentially changing rundown of audio files. When you put the card in the box it plays the music. You can see the blog to read about the inspiration behind this project. and you can use it with websites which lets you build your own podcast of audio files. Like in this case, the author uses Huffduffer.
This project matches contactless cards, which are ‘programmed’, with podcast feeds. When we say ‘programmed’, we mean that the cards ids and urls are matched and kept in the memory. When the box is open and the card is present, it plays music. If there is no new item in the podcast, it remembers the last location. This device gives you the freedom to listen to music without a laptop or a mobile phone.
So you need quite a few things for this project. An RPI B/B+, mini speaker with external battery supply, breadboard are some of the ingredients. For the complete list of things and tools needed, you can head over to the blog link, given at the bottom.
You start with writing the SD card and after that, it will just take you a couple of hours to assemble everything.
Check out the video in the link before you start.
Awesome, isn’t it!
