I’m (almost too) excited to ship Frame 🖼️, our SOM project we’ve completed.
🦑 What is it? Previously named Smart Album Cover Display, Frame, which sits on your wall, displays the music you’re listening to. It either uses the Spotify API or detects the music you’re listening to with microphones.
🐳 It’s been a good summer! With all the support from Hack Club we were able to complete this, and I am currently working on a Flutter App to configure settings (currently it’s a react site).
🐝 What’s the purpose? We see it as art. I truly spend hours each day just looking at it (the beauty is not apparent in the photos). Music truly is a beautiful thing.
🍀 Want to make your own? We’re working on a hardware guide. The code is, of course, open source. Contact us with questions.
We couldn’t have done this without Hack Club 🎉 💓
p.s. here is Blonde by Frank Ocean, KIDS SEE GHOSTS by KIDS SEE GHOSTS, Yellow Submarine by The Beatles and Nothing Was The Same by Drake. We’ve also implemented a clock when paused (with custom colors 🎨) and auto-brightness with a light sensor.🐸We are almost done with our SOM project, the smart album cover display. Here's a demonstration of the spotify feature, which displays the playing song on the screen almost instantly, complete with transitions 😏, and autobrightness 🤯. Here's a video!A couple of days ago, my brother and I replaced “517” with 516.99 repeat as our house address as a joke (since they are mathematically equivalent). Today, we received this letter
🎸We made more progress on the _Summer of Making_ Smart Album Cover display… it finally listens to music playing in the room and gets the album cover! Here’s Tyler, The Creator’s*Flower Boy* and Drake’s _Nothing Was The Same_, which we think look exceptional 🌟. We’ve printed some of the parts for the frame (pictures on the GitHub Repo), and have to setup always listening and automatic volume adjustment, but after that it will be finished.
made big progress on the som project — (display that listens to live music, and displays album cover) with @ahenikoff
I got my music recognition to work (here’s just quick thing to prove i got it to work haha), it is an audio recording of music, for my #som project!
a couple days ago I wondered 🤔, when you drop your pencil, doesn’t it always end up 3 miles away from your chair? I tested it out! (i’ve been pretty bored lately). Here are the results:Today I wondered, 🤔 how has my music taste changed in the past year? I downloaded my spotify data, and found out! (Here’s the interactive link)
