Introduction: U.S.S. Constitution MP3 Radio

Hello,

One day, while surfing the web I came across a hobbyist making dioramas of WWII battleships and displaying them in museums. I thought to my self, "that looks great so lets take it to another level". Behold, the world's first diorama MP3 radio! Due to copyright laws, I did not play music through the radio. When the radio is playing the LEDs on the clock's face blink simultaneously with the sound waves.

Have fun,

This is so cool! I new I had to check this out because my dad was the 70th captain of the USS Constitution. Great job!

Thank you, I am glad you enjoyed it. What an honor it must be for your father to have commanded this ship.

It was pretty freaking amazing. If you ever get the chance you should definitely check it out.
