See it in action:
When our teacher Jean Noël showed us his first version of the Arduino based slot-in record player, a project he made years ago, we found it way cool and we decided to work on the V2. This new version will have improvements essentially on the human machine interface in order to make it more user friendly.
For instance, it will be no more necessary to upload a new Arduino sketch to update the playlist, you'll be able to do it directly by naming your .mp3 files on the SD card. Also we are adding an RGB LCD display to give informations to the user and make some cool light animations.
Why do we enter to the Hack It Back Hackaday prize contest?
Our plan is to make it in the form of an easy DIY electronic kit and to scale it in order to sale on Tindie.com.
We also want to launch with a crowdfundig campaign, on Indiegogo or Kickstarter for instance.
That's why we need to win somewhere between the fifth and the first place, the Supplyframe DesignLab Residency would be ideal to reach our goal.
