Grandson Builds Telegram Machine for His Grandmother as ‘Yayagram’
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

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.
