Over at the MightyOhm, Jeff has been working on building a streaming WiFi radio system (built around a Asus WL-520GU router):
I have been wanting to build a streaming radio for some time. I frequently work in my garage, where I occasionally use my Macbook to play music through a small amplifier and bookshelf speakers. The problem is that my laptop is not always set up in the garage, and greasy fingers are not a good thing to have around a white laptop, period. I could simply buy an internet radio, but I couldn’t stomach the $150-$300 price tag on most players for such a luxury.
So I decided to build one instead.
I started the design process by drafting an outline of desired features, and then breaking them down into wants and needs, while trying to keep the project scope under control.
