Reid Bingham and Sean McIntyre, the duo behind Double One Design, created Autonomous Interactive Radio (AIR for short). It’s a Raspberry Pi-based DJ system which accepts MP3 files via email and enqueues them to be played out through the audio output. The project was their work for Interactivos, a ten day arts and technology workshop held in Ljubljana, Slovenia. They tried using AIR with a small, low-power FM transmitter as a pirate radio station (caveat factor… maker beware), but they also had the opportunity to try it on a local radio station with the proper license. The code is available to download on Github and more project details are available on their site.
