Here are some of my projects. Now showing:
"LPCoverArt", as seen at the Vancouver Mini Maker Faire 2017.

9th June 2017
LPCoverArt is a project I worked on in early 2017. While mp3 etc. is a logical evolution of the medium, I lament the physical artwork that gives an album some tangible context while you become familiar with the songs. This project involved making an Oak frame with a 19" 4:3 LCD screen inside, which displays the artwork at the very same size as an old vinyl LP. A thick frame border covers up the extra width. It is powered by Raspberry Pi Zero that simply displays a website, and sleeps the display when no music is playing. I created an app for MacOS which hosts the webpage with artwork on it so that the wall-hanging frame can display it. The app picks up the artwork from iTunes via AppleScript. This currently only works with iTunes on a Mac, and presumes the computer is always powered on and awake.

You can download the MacOS app here. It's still WIP, so it may not run for you. For starters, you may need to remove it from quarantine using 'xattr -d /path/to/App'
