Tune Into the Bonnaroo That No One Gets to Go To

Just like the whole thing else in 2020, the four-day, multi-stage competition of song and artwork referred to as Bonnaroo has been cancelled. This would had been [Guy Dupont]’s 5th 12 months making the adventure to Tennessee together with his buddy. Since they couldn’t pass, [Guy] determined to construct an interactive Bonnaroo combine tape into an 80s clock radio as a birthday provide.

[Guy] was once in a position to re-purpose all of the authentic buttons and dials to navigate during the agenda of acts that may have carried out throughout four days and five phases. The comfortably four-way serve as slider is used to select the day, and the radio tuning dial selects the level, whole with pleasant static between the positions. The remainder of the buttons transfer backward and forward during the scheduled set occasions, and one will scroll the observe and artist identify around the 16-segment presentations. The snooze button has the glory of being the play/pause button.

All the inputs are managed with a Feather M4 categorical, and the song comes thru a DFPlayer Mini. We love that [Guy] was once in a position to repurpose the analog tuning dial by means of coupling it to a slide potentiometer that are compatible completely in a slot at the underside of the plastic. Stay tuned for an excellent video that begins with an evidence and demo after which is going into the construct.

Though the software of the clock radio could have been supplanted by means of mobile phone alarms and doomscrolling, that simply signifies that there are theoretically extra of them to intestine and transform different issues, like this Fallout-inspired luggable Pip-Boy.
