    IANAL, apologies if I miss understand license requirements.

  • Project mention: Ask HN: Nobody interested an open hardware iPod Nano? | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-02-29

    So here is the thing: The iPod Nano 7g is from 2012. I've seen many people designing custom PCBs and releasing Kickstarter projects for custom audio players[5] or game handhelds[6]. I know Rockbox (which is great, but its lacks support for Wifi and Bluetooth AFAIK and just does not compete with the UX of iPod's audio book features in my opinion) and iPod Linux. 10 years ago someone even reverse engineered the iPod Nano 6g display[3].

    Although I'm not skilled enough in PCB-Design, after some research I found the Lilygo T-Display S3 Pro[4] based on ESP32 S3, which would be the size, but lacks audio and OS. There is also the Mango PI CyberPad[7], which looked interesting, but maybe is already too clunky.

    Programming wise, LVGL[8] may be a good framework to develop a modern and efficient UI - at least it looks promising.

    So, why is nobody interested in recreating an iPod nano like device? It should be doable with modern tech, but Phones have completely taken over the marked...

    No. You can use a music player such as VLC Media Player to play music back tuned up or down slightly if you wish. But if people are affected by some frequencies and not others, that would be new.
