In the article, Craig mentions that my Wifi Radio project gave him the inspiration to build his project. Thanks for the shoutout, Craig!
“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!
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!
Welcome, BBC listeners! You probably want to start here.
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!
