I thought I’d share this little project I did today. A small ‘now playing’ LCD screen. It auto-updates every 10 seconds and is working great!
The source code can be found here: github.com/zefer/nowplaying
The hardware used:
- Arduino Uno
- Ethernet shield
- 16 x 2 LCD display
- 10k Ohm potentiometer to adjust LCD contrast
- Volumio on the same network with hostname ‘music’
I’ve had this Arduino in a box doing nothing for a long time, so I wanted to make use of it.
