Cassette Player Turned Into Spotify Media Server with Raspberry Pi: SpotiPi

Earlier this year we saw a couple of vintage radios that were turned into an Internet radio player using Raspberry Pi. Matt Brailsford’s cassette player Raspberry Pi mod is “only” a Spotify media server, but he makes up for it with an intuitive user interface.

With the exception of the record button, which now acts as a power switch, the buttons and the knob on Matt’s player work as they did before, controlling playback and volume.

As if that wasn’t cool enough, Matt added an NFC reader then attached an NFC tag on each side of a few cassette tapes. Switching tapes or sides changes the playlist.

Find out more about Matt and his project on CNET.
