Makers, electronic enthusiasts and hobbyists looking for a new project to keep them busy this weekend may be interested in a new Arduino music player and remote control which has been created by Dan the Geek. The small pocket music player features a Feather M0 RFM69HCW Packet Radio and is currently a project still under development. The music player provides a range of about 250 ft with an unobstructed view, which is very impressive when compared to Bluetooth’s unobstructed range of 33 ft.
It’s creator explains more about the inspiration behind the pocket-sized music player and its features. “This is a music system geared towards performers, like magicians, ventriloquists, jugglers and the like who perform a one man/woman show and need an easy way to queue up and play music and sounds. It uses two packet radio Arduino devices, one that stores the music on an SD card and is hooked up to a speaker system, and the other that provides buttons and a display that controls the music. The project has been coming along nicely since my last post, and I am quite pleased with the results so far. Since the last post, i have made significant software improvements and also created a 3D printed case for the remote. I also informally tested the range of the remote, which uses packet radio to communicate with the base receiver. My test showed a range of about 250 feet with an unobstructed view. In comparison, Bluetooth’s unobstructed range is about 33 feet.”
