1950’s style Linux based internet radio…


8224F1.Inline“Radii-a 1950s-style radio with Internet content – a box with buttons and dials used to select bands and tune stations in a familiar way. Because this radio receives Internet radio, it provides hundreds of noise-free stations with a wide variety of listening options. The band selection dial, instead of AM and FM, is used to select genres such as News, Sports and Rock. The station selection dial scrolls through station names that can be tuned by clicking the select button.” Thanks Nat! Link.

    I use a Sharp Zarus PDA (linux OS) and a freeware* app ‘zRadio’ to listen to radio streams over 802.11 around the house.

    *seems to have gone shareware with a non editable preset list. But you can edit the preset text file outside the gui to program your favourites, or pay the $10 or whatever.

    correction: Sharp Zaurus. Ebay has them for $100 – $150. Wireless card should be around another $30-40
