New sound and light for an old retro desktop jukebox.

A few years ago I got a small jukebox with a radio, CD player and some lamps. After only a short time I converted the jukebox to a multimedia PC. But even this one was just standing around most of the time.

In January 2020 I discovered the Volumio program for the Raspberry Pi. I installed it on my RPi and was thrilled! Soon I had the idea totake out my jukebox and rebuild it again. Since I have also gained experiencewith the Arduino and NeoPixel, the lighting of my jukebox had to be modernized.

I removed the existing lighting and installed 31 NeoPixels. I wrote some lines of code for the Arduino and the LEDs lit up.”
