Paper radio hack

Spring 2018

Timeframe: 1 week
As an initial experiment before my experimental radio, I re-imagined a radio interface by hacking a small portable radio, and rewired it to a tilt switch for power, and two microswitches with levers for volume. Power was controlled by the orientation of the radio, creating two explicit on/off states, and volume was controlled by sliding the long panel. The base of the radio was created using foam core and bristol vellum.
