Intro: 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,

    Thank you, I painted the inside black so it would have a cleaner appearance and hides the flaw in the wood.
