Developer Michael Clemens has used a $35 Raspberry Pi to create a one button, audiobook player for his wife’s visually impaired 90-year-old grandmother, enabling here to listen to audio book with ease.
The compact device uses the Raspberry Pi to read audio books from a USB flash drive that is connected to the device. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the Audiobook player project and see it in action.
Once the Raspberry Pi device has booted a script runs that supports a range of formats including FLAC, MP3, and OGG Vorbis and pauses the audiobook, a simple press of the button and the audiobook starts playing.
