This project is a device to play music from physical media. Housed in an industrial-style folded aluminium case.
The project is split into several discrete systems. This allowed me to solve problems independently, and complete parts of the overall project in steps. It also gave me flexibility when physically arranging the parts in the case, and determining the overall physical design.
Functionality Overview of this project:
- Music files are stored on an SD card with each alum or playlist in a separate directory. Each directory has an identification number.
- The user inserts cards into the device, and holes in these cards are read, and translated into a number which correlates with a specific directory on the SD card.
- Buttons allow the user to play the MP3s in the directory corresponding to the card inserted, as well as pause, and skip forward and back in the album.
- Actions and status are displayed on the screen
Album selection is only by the use of the media cards. The storage of files on an SD card is invisible to the user (once the card is loaded with files)
