The March issue of Nuts and Volts features an article by Craig Lindley about how to Build Your Own Wi-Fi Internet Radio.

In the article, Craig mentions that my Wifi Radio project gave him the inspiration to build his project. Thanks for the shoutout, Craig!

Wifi Radio mention in Popular Science – October 2011

My Wifi Radio project got a shoutout in this month’s issue of Popular Science!

“Radio How You Want It” by Vin Marshall appears on page 78.  Vin built a gorgeous Wi-Fi radio based on my plans.  He also added a number of twists and new features, such as an analog signal strength meter and a graphic LCD display.

Nice work, Vin!  Thanks for the mention!


Jan’s Wifi Radio has a modern look

Thursday, March 24th, 2011

Jan Wante made this gorgeous Wifi Radio with a modern look. It is based on my original Wifi Radio tutorials.

Not content to simply duplicate my work, he added a few creative twists of his own, including a custom handmade case made of alucobond, MDF, and real wood veneer that gives his finished radio a nice, modern look. Inside, a hacked WL-520gU wireless router running OpenWrt runs the show and an ATmega microcontroller programmed with BASCOM interfaces with a rotary encoder and graphical LCD display.

The very impressive result is shown in this video:

Nice work, Jan!

Wifi Radio mention on BBC’s Digital Planet

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

Welcome, BBC listeners!  You probably want to start here.

Last Friday, I was interviewed by Gareth Mitchell of BBC’s Digital Planet at the incredibly successful Dorkbot/Ignite SXSW show.

The Digital Planet SXSW episode (and a <short!> clip from my interview) is now online.

You can also subscribe to a podcast of the show, available for most media players.

I also uploaded some pictures of the Dorkbot/Ignite event. They only capture a small fraction of the exhibits, there just wasn’t enough time for me to see them all!
