This Instructable shows you how to build an internet radio (listen to jazz, house music, rock, salsa...) in less than 30 minutes without any technical knowledge nor soldering.

The radio uses a raspberry Pi as hardware, a ready to flash file to write a SDCard and a graphical interface to customize the radio itself.

Step 1: The Hardware

Get first a Raspberry Pi 2 from any vendor (see here). The Raspberry Pi is a low cost (less than 45$), credit-card sized computer. It is a capable little device that enables people of all ages to explore computing. It’s capable of doing everything you’d expect a desktop computer to do.

We use one to build our Internet Radio.

<p>Great share on the programming aspect. Too bad we can't see the physical box itself.</p>
Its on the picture above. But I plan to include the whole stuff in a (very) old radio I got from my Grand Mother. Still waiting to find a battery &quot;passing through&quot; that keep charging while in use and without a on/off button.
<p>Starting with the Thingbox 1.8, you have to use &quot;theThingbox.local/&quot; instead of &quot;theThingbox:1880&quot;</p>
