Build your bluetooth speaker with a simple Arduino board

Speaker with Arduino

We have always said that Free Hardware sometimes allows us to create gadgets that we need at a lower price than proprietary solutions. In today's article I give you a good example of this. In this case a user named Peter clough has Creado a home bluetooth speaker with a different shape than usual: hexagonal shape.

These speakers (since then he has created several more) are not for professional or very demanding users but for those who want to have a modest solution for a certain place, well the hexagonal shape as well as the led lights can be changed to our liking.

This bluetooth speaker has a very low cost but it is not for professional use

The user in particular has taken a speaker that we can find in any hobby store and has connected it to an Arduino Mini board. Besides that Arduino Mini board has a board connected with a bluetooth module, so we can send any sound document remotely. In addition, the LED lights are controlled by the plate and it changes the color when we raise or lower the bass, something interesting for certain places.

The good thing about it all is that it can be recreated and customized as Peter Clough has uploaded on Imgur all the images and steps of the project, an original project on the other hand.

Some time ago something similar also appeared where a wooden desk was totally personalized and controlled by Free Hardware, in this case the speakers were connected to the computer that was a Raspberry Pi board.

May these bluetooth speakers are interesting to be able to build a computer or a computer environment adapted to our needs or also create speakers for our mediacenter. In any case, it will not be something expensive like professional bluetooth speakers can be. Do not you think?
