ONE OF THE Raspberry Pi’s special qualities is the fact that you can transform it into a dedicated device of its own. In this adventure, you will transform your Raspberry Pi into a jukebox, complete with buttons to select and play tracks, and an LCD screen to display the song names. Figure 9-1 shows my version of the completed project.
I hope this adventure will whet your appetite for more big Raspberry Pi projects. If you want to continue your Raspberry Pi journey, I’ve included a few resources at the end of the adventure to give you some ideas. The more you work with the Raspberry Pi and learn about what it can do, the more you’ll come up with your own big project ideas!

A big project like this is great for drawing together many of the skills you have learned in previous adventures. Because this project is complex, I’ve broken the instructions into four parts. But before you dive in to the details, here’s a short road map of what you’ll be doing.
