Creative grandson constructs Telegram informing machine for 96-year-old grandma

Made for the maker’s grandma to help stay in contact

Ensuring elderly folks can stay in touch with youngsters and grandkids has never been more significant in a period of worldwide lockdown. That is the reason Twitter client @mrcatacroquer, Manuel Lucio Dallo, constructed the Yayagram — a DIY project that makes sending and accepting voice and instant messages over Telegram an actual interaction very much like utilizing an antiquated telephone switchboard.

It’s significant, obviously, not to make speculations regarding the capacity of more seasoned ages to will holds with new innovation. In any case, talking from individual experience, I realize my own grandparents battled with the advanced interfaces of present day telephones and cell phones. They very much wanted actual fastens and changes to applications and touchscreens.



That is the reason the Yayagram is so convincing (“Yaya” is slang for “granny” in Castillean, says Dallo, “a warm method to allude to your grandma”). To communicate something specific, the client truly connects a link close to the beneficiary’s name. They at that point press and hold a catch to record sound and talk into the coordinated amplifier. The message at that point shows up on the beneficiary’s telephone like a customary voice note. Furthermore, when the administrator of the Yayagram gets an instant message, it’s printed off utilizing an inherent warm printer.

Dallo, who’s a senior architect for programming firm Plastic SCM, really expounds on how the gadget was made in this Twitter string. It’s fueled by a Raspberry Pi 4, runs on Python, and utilizations a few outsider programming libraries to integrate everything. The mouthpiece is a modest USB one and the printer like those utilized in clerk works. He takes note of that he decided to utilize Telegram as opposed to WhatsApp or another informing administration as it’s more open (and he doesn’t care for Facebook).

Addressing The Verge, Dallo says his grandma is 96 and lives with his folks in Burgos, a city in Spain where he additionally dwells. He says he was propelled to construct the gadget due to the pandemic lockdowns. “The greater part of the grandkids live outside of Burgos and in light of Coronavirus development limitations they can’t visit us and her,” said Dallo.

Dallo adds that his grandma is nearly deaf, which settles on normal telephone decisions and video calls troublesome. The Yayagram, by examination, gives her the autonomy to make and get messages without help from anyone else. “It enables her and fabricates correspondence spans with the remainder of her grandkids who are not fortunate enough to live close by,” he says.

It’s an awesome undertaking and you can see Dallo and his Yaya utilizing the gadget beneath:
