Since the biodegradable case has started crumbling around the button, I (Semafoor) ordered a new button that should enable some additional functionality (volume, previous song) and made a plan for a steel case with some workaround to keep functionality of the nRF module. More info when the button arrives (free economy int'l shipping, so probably in 2 to 8 weeks).

Skip annoying music with the skip button.

Indeed, it is very ugly.

Operation:

press
skip
press and hold (2 seconds)
stop
press and shake (2 seconds)
replace playlist with random shuffle play

Inspired by Bitlair's skip button project, but with major differences:

  • 2,4 GHz instead of 433 MHz, because nRF24L01+ modules are so easy to use :-)
  • Capacitor instead of transistor logic to keep the arduino running long enough.
  • For now, just a button for skipping, no volume control.
  • Optiboot boot loader instead of a custom one.
  • Uglier case, uglier button.

Software:

See also the README files in the Git repositories.

Suggested changes for those who feel like hacking on this:

  • Bare atmega instead of complete arduino
  • Better case
  • Better button
  • More buttons
    • Volume control
    • Play/pause
Skip 2.0
