Project 1: WiFi Music Alert Box

You can turn the Internet of Things into the Internet of Tunes! With this easy-to-build project you can use online events to trigger your favorite songs.

The Feather ESP8266 Huzzah is a WiFi connected board that can use the Music Maker FeatherWingwith amp to play music at your command. Using the Adafruit IO service, a small bit of Arduino code and IFTTT (If This then That), events such as Twitter mentions, weather reports, YouTube uploads, news alerts, and more can trigger songs to play that you have stored on the included SD memory card.

In this great guide from John Park, he will also show you how to take the included box and make it a custom speaker box.
