I showed Octoate my little 3D-printed Roland, the mascot of Roland Radio (http://www.rolandradio.net) and that i have had the idea to integrate a little Web-radio-Player into this guy. Octoate told me, that there is a project with not that many hardware needed to realise a streaming web-radio without any harm.
So today i asked him about the items and the sites he showed me at Revision 2018. I collect those information here and try to build this streaming radio to integrate it into my 3D-printed Roland. And that’s what Octoate told me:
- The Project itself: https://hackaday.com/2017/08/22/esp8266-based-internet-radio-receiver-is-packed-with-features/
- The GutHUb-repository: https://github.com/Edzelf/Esp-radio
- Also needed: MP3 Decoder Board: https://eckstein-shop.de/VLSI-VS1003B-MP3-Decoder-Module-Development-Board-Arduino-AVR-PIC
- And one of the standard 1.8″ TFT Displays with SD-card: https://eckstein-shop.de/18-inch-128X160-SPI-Serial-TFT-LCD-Display-Modul-SD-Card
- Passender ESP8266: https://eckstein-shop.de/NodeMcu-Lua-WIFI-Internet-Development-Board-based-on-ESP-12E-CP2102
So i’ve ordered all the parts today and after they arrived here at my home, i will continue with building a web-radio-player. Octoate promised to help me on this and i am very sure i will require his help. I will arrange all following articles about this web-radio in a series of articles, so the project should be well documented and easy to follow. And remember: i am a totally newbie to this 🙂
