The Travelling Radio: Hacking a radio for someone who travels the world

Picture of The Travelling Radio: Hacking a radio for someone who travels the world
As part of our Second Year Product Design course we were given the brief to design a working radio. The Travelling Radio has been designed to suit a young adult who loves to travel the world. The radio will provide the user with a connection to the rest of the world and the idea is that it is able to fit the drinks holder of any type of transport.

This is a step-by-step guide of how I manufactured the radio. 

Step 1: Exploded View
