Raspberry Pi Powered Floating Portable Speaker
If you have access to a 3D printer together with a swimming pool new may be interested in a new Raspberry Pi project to create a 3D printed floating speaker.
“My goal/inspiration for this project was to have a speaker that floats around like a buoy in the sea. Throw it in your pool or off the side of your boat and this little guy will get the party going. And with wireless charging everything will be completely water proof.” The maker BryantM says about his project goal.
Full instructions about this DIY project have been shared on Instructables.com. Even though there are still no CAD files available, the DIYer has promised to release them soon, so anyone with a 3d printer can try and build one for themselves.
All you need for this project is:
- 3d printer
- 3d print epoxy
- Marine grade speakers
- Waterproof switch
- Expansion foam
- Silicone sealant
- Wireless charging power tool battery
- Raspberry pi
- Hifi berry amp 2
- Button head cap screws
- Screw posts
- Hex nuts
The battery used for this project is a Bosch WC18CF-102 because it has an induction charging feature, which allows for wireless charging. Induction charging makes sense for this project because it is wireless and can pass through a waterproof boundary.
