Maker uses Raspberry Pi and AI to block noisy neighbor's music by hacking nearby Bluetooth speakers

Feb 27, 2024 -
Roni Bandini, a maker and developer, created a Raspberry Pi-powered device to combat his neighbors' habit of playing loud reggaeton music. The device uses AI to detect reggaeton music and then interferes with nearby Bluetooth speakers to distort the audio. The Raspberry Pi 3 B+ is connected to a DFRobot OLED display panel and uses a USB microphone to listen for music. The AI system, Edge Impulse, was trained to identify reggaeton music.

The project was mostly made in jest and the legality of recreating it varies depending on location. It also requires close proximity to the Bluetooth speaker and may not work with all speaker types. More information about the project can be found on the official project page on Hackster.

Key takeaways:

  • Roni Bandini created a Raspberry Pi project that interferes with nearby Bluetooth speakers when it detects Reggaeton music.
  • The project was made as a jest and its legality varies depending on local laws.
  • The device is powered by a Raspberry Pi 3 B+ and uses a DFRobot OLED display panel, a USB microphone, and a push button.
  • The AI system driving the machine learning aspects of the design is Edge Impulse, which was trained to identify Reggaeton music.
