I'm looking for somebody with experience programming embedded linux boards for a project I'll be working on until december. I'm an industrial designer with some arduino experience, but to make it happen for real I'd need some help. Otherwise I'd have to "fake" it and it would be nice to finish it properly.
The project has to do with an internet radio and it will last until december. At this moment, with my arduino skills I'll need a computer either to stream the music from an API written in C or using AppleScript to control what do I want the computer to play. That's ok, but if somebody wants to join me, we can work together and build something more decent.
The hardware interface I have in mind is something very simple and it would send serial commands to the computer to do whatever it has to do. Play a specific uri, pause, volume change... The arduino can control the hardware interface and just trigger the actions to be done by the embedded linux board, that should be connected wirelessly to the wifi at home.
My main problem is that I have no Linux experience at all and I don't really know how complicated would that be. It might be something really simple for somebody that knows about it, or maybe is something not really feasible at all and I'm considering something impossible to do.
So, if there's anybody out there that has any experience with embedded linux boards and would like to know more about the project, please let me know so we can talk more about it. I'm not considering learning linux for that, I'd rather work with somebody that knows how to do it.
And well, once everything is finished, I'd love to release it under an open source license or maybe even build a few of them. It can be a really nice thing...
If you're interested, please get in touch!
