Hack your own WiFi web radio boombox


We just saw Nathan True's wireless music player based on a hacked Netgear router, but this time we've got a custom built WiFi boombox with speakers in tow. This hack, by Isnoop, is also Linux based, and uses a USB flash drive for storage, but implements a tiny motherboard to run the show. The boombox sniffs for WiFi networks and then automatically connects to a web radio station. Now if it just didn't sound like a crappy little boombox -- that's Isnoop's next project.
