RFID-Enabled Music Players

The 'Juuke' Box is Powered by an Arduino Uni Micro Controller

— August 4, 2020 — Tech
The 'Juuke' box is an intuitive music player that is designed to provide users with a simple way to play their favorite audio in an easy-to-use manner. The unit is powered by an Arduino Uni micro controller that works with RFID-enabled cards to play specific songs stored on an internal SD card. This enables users to easily prompt specific songs to be played without having to deal with screens, apps, CDs or other media.

The 'Juuke' box is the design work of Instructables users Ananrods who created it for his girlfriend's grandmother whose health has diminished and requires an easier way to prompt music playback for enjoying with family. The system features simple controls that make the shape of a smily face for a friendly appearance.
