Introducing the new Radio Wave. This new Product will revolutionize how sailors and water sport enthusiasts will listen to the radio, or just put music to your ears in the shower. The radio wave is the result of a 12 week product design project at Dundee University. The task was to use the workings from an existing radio and redesign it completely. I loosely based my radio on a character card that i made but i deviated from it along the way. This rugged and impact resistant radio will withstand the hardest knocks and can be taken anywhere and stuck to almost any surface. have a go at building one for yourself. I will take you through exactly what you need to build it and the way i found best to make it.
Step 1: Materials list
This is a list of the materials that you will need to build the radio wave
. 1 working radio chip and speaker
. arox 1sq M of fiberglass matting
. arox 500ml of fiberglass resin
. arox 10 ml of fiberglass hardener
. 1 new bathroom plunger
. 1 tub of car body filler and hardener
. 3 small pieces of wood
. 2 small pieces of 3 mm pvc plastic
. 1 old bike inner tube
. 3 small nuts and bolts ( size is optional)
. 1 hot melt glue stick
. 1 can of gloss spray paint
These are the materials i use but many can be substituted with alternate build methods.
Step 2: Exploded Diagram
This is an exploded Diagram of my final radio. This should make putting the radio together easier once you have made all the parts.
