Topic: Yet Another Arduino Jukebox (Read 807 times) previous topic - next topic

Inspired by the design of Mario Pucci's tiny carboard jukebox I found on a blog post by Zoe Romano, I decided to make my own, slightly larger version of it. But instead of using an NFC Shield (whatever that is ...?) I plan to use just an Arduino Nano and a DFPlayer.

After nine days, I've cut and painted most of the woodwork. And before I assemble it, I need to decide how to design the interface. So I started making the PCB with the Nano and the DFPlayer, and it went well. I decided that 100 music (or 50 "records") files will be a good number. The problem is: How will I visualize the song(s) picked and currently playing? 100 LEDs feels like a whole lot of work, but a couple of 7 segment displays would on the other hand look very boring.

I created a blog post about the project, sorry but so far it's Swedish only. I will update it as the project (hopefully) proceeds. If there is enough international interest, I may switch to English. But Google Translate makes a decent job, at least into English.

You could add a TFT or OLED display and have several lines of text displayed with a picture or something when a song is selected.

Well, I don't know. Even the LEDs make quite an anachronism in the jukebox feel, and a microminiature display would really ruin whatever is left of the early 70's feeling. And in order to display song titles and artist information on it, I guess we need another, more advanced mp3 player and preferably a Raspberry Pi or something like that, too.
