Automatic Song Cycler

This Instructable will take you step-by-step through the process of creating your own automatic song cycler for any playlist of music! No longer will you have to manually go back and forth from your current screen and iTunes to find the song you want! Before beginning however, make sure you have downloaded the Scratch for Arduino program released by MIT and have an Arduino hooked into your computer. After opening the program (with the Arduino synced), you are ready to begin. 

Made in the Virginia Tech ICAT Maker Studio.
