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

I've attached the exploded view of my radio design. This helps to show how each component is attached to each part. Below is a component list that shows what I used to make this radio. Some of the materials used could be changed and altered depending on what you prefer. 

Material List:

Plastic Cup (to suit size of circuit board)
High Density Modelling Polystyrene
3mm MDF
Wood Glue
Super Glue
Double-sided Tape
Circuit Board and Components (from Sony Radio ICF-S22)
Spray Paint

Tool List:

Various drills

Sometimes maybe you should let someone you love travel great distances away from you. You shouldn&rsquo;t think you needed to set out to retrieve them and put them back where they belonged. Sometimes they were only safe and happy, like Annabelle Aurora. And then other times, it was just possible they were lost at sea. It would be your duty, then, to get out into the boat and search, even if the waves were choppy and the wind was howling the protests of the dead. <br> <br><a href="http://www.seabreezetravels.com/flights-to-lilongwe" rel="nofollow">Cheap Flights to Lilongwe</a>
