Internet radio with an Arduino and Raspberry Pi

 Each development platform has its' own strengths and weaknesses, however synergy can be found when two platforms work together for a common goal. The following example demonstrates neatly how an Arduino board and LCD can work together with a Raspberry Pi to create an Internet-radio. The RPi receives the streaming audio, plays it through an external speaker - and displays relevant data on the LCD. It's relatively simple and it works, for example:

Another interesting example of Raspberry Pi and Arduino working together. And for more, we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

Want to make your own Arduino-controlled project, but not sure how to start? Then the best way to learn is with out new Experimenter's Kit for Arduino:

The package includes a wide variety of parts, sensors and modules including: a servo motor, lights, buttons, switches, sound, sensors, breadboard, wires and more. Furthermore a Freetronics Eleven Arduino-compatible board is included to make this an extensive hobby experimenter, inventor and starter kit. However we don't leave you alone to figure it all out, included is a great project and instruction booklet, plus access to a supporting web page and software examples. In other words - this is everything you need to get started for a fun range of electronics and Arduino related projects! 

So to get started or for more information and to order, check out the product page.
