Manuel Lucio Dallo, Senior Solutions Engineer at Unity has built

an impressive Telegram texting machine for his grandmother.

Dallo detailed the machine and how he made it in a thread on Twitter.

Hello world! I want to share with you a device I made, its name is “Yayagram”

, a machine that helps our beloved elders to keep communicating with their

grandchildren.

How? Let me open a thread to give you all the details of this contraption.

First, why Yayagram? Well, “Yaya” means “Granny” in Castillean,

a warm way to refer to your grandmother.

And, I use @Telegram to send and receive messages,

so merge both words and you have the… #Yayagram!

The Yayagram has two features:

● Send voice messages via Telegram by just pressing a button.

● Receive Telegram messages and physically print them on thermal paper.

To send a new voice message you need first to choose the destination

grandchild, the selection is made using a Jack connector,

like the #cablegirls used to do!

Recording a new voice message is similar to the regular #Telegram app, but here

all is analog. Keep the record button pressed. Talk. Release the button and it’s sent!

Dallo used a Raspberry Pi 4 as the brain of the device. It’s coded in Python

using several third-party libraries. Other components include jack connectors,

LEDs, cables, a printer, a mic, and a button. He plans to publish

an instructables project soon with all the build details.

Take a look at a couple photos of the device below and hit
