Internet Radio in an Antique Case

 

 

You can see the case above that Tony Flynn built the Internet Radio project around. The outside may look old but the internals are sporting a powerful Raspberry Pi. It uses your local wifi to tune in internet tunes.

“The radio is configurable by anyone and no programming skills are required.  All the stations and settings are stored in a text based configuration file which is stored on a USB memory stick accessible at the back of the radio.  When the user wants to change the settings or add new stations they remove the USB stick and edit the text-file using a laptop and any text editor.”
