Since my childhood, I have been a big fan of wrestling. I hardly missed a match from WWE (former WWF). The deadly stunts by those famous wrestlers made me stick to the television all the time. However, besides their fighting, what most attracted me was their dramatic entrance with crazy music. I always wished to have my own theme song to play when I enter the room or somewhere else. And, it looks like wish has become true.
You don’t really need to be a WWE superstar to have your entrance music, thanks to some folks in Red Pepper that finally made this happened. The team used a tiny Raspberry Pi, hooked it up with a boom box to feed it the music. The Raspberry Pi acts as the control center for the project, running Node.js and receiving commands via web sockets from a publicly accessible control server. They have also developed an app named Doorjam that lets you select your theme song from Spotify whenever your iBeacon is within the range. It means, whenever you enter your room, your high school cafeteria or your bedroom, Pi will play the music over the stereo.
If you’re looking to build your own for another stereo, you can try using the available code and instructions from their website. So, it’s time to choose your ultimate theme song.
