$20 Router Hacked into Internet Radio

By Jason Fitzpatrick on January 10th, 2013

There’s a plethora of cheap Chinese-manufactured routers on the market, all just begging for modifications. This simple modification turns one particular model into a tiny internet radio.

Courtesy of German tinker Peter Feuerer, this project takes a cheap TP-Link 703n and adds in a ATtiny85 with some basic controls and an OpenWRT upgrade to turn it into a tiny internet-powered radio. Check out the video above to see it in action or hit up the link below for more information.
