Raspberry Pi Wall Box SONOS Controller #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Great Raspberry Pi project turns a 1960s table top jukebox into a SONOS controller:

I used a Raspberry Pi to re-invent my old 1960’s wall box as a controller for my wireless home media system (SONOS). It looks wonderful in my kitchen with its chrome and warm lights. Everyone loves dropping in a quarter, seeing the credits light up, and hearing it clunk and whirr as it selects a song.

The RPi is housed inside the wall box and runs a program that polls the GPIO for pulses from the wallbox. It decodes the pulses into a song selection and using UPnP protocols over my home wi-fi, adds the song to the SONOS queue.

Check out Steve Devlin’s website for a complete how-to to make your own!
