Guilherme Schallenbach has used a Raspberry Pi mini PC and Arduino micro controller with great effect to create an awesome miniature Internet radio which he has aptly named the Mini Vintage.
Watch the video below to learn more or jump over to the Arduino project Hub via the link below for full instructions on how to create your very own Mini Vintage internet radio.
Schallenbach explains more about the inspiration behind the project :
This project was created to participate in the “Give your Hardware a Home” challenge. I had no previous experience in 3D design, but it was a chance to work some new skills. I also don’t have access to a 3D printer. So this competition was a real chance to win one.
As the challenge rewards a 3D printer, my main goal was to develop an enclosure to be printed.
My purpose is to mix new technology with a vintage look and feel. But I also want to make the enclosure the smallest possible and without unnecessary cutouts. The only cutouts available are the power chord and the audio out (but it can be eliminated with a Bluetooth USB setup).
It took me endless nights to figure out how to use the software to model the ideas I had, but it made me really excited with the end result. I really want to build one for myself. Hope you all like this project.
