Maker culture is showing little sign of slowing down, which is evident with products like these AirPlay speakers that make use of a Raspberry Pi Zero to create a wireless experience. Created and designed by Frederick Vandenbosch, the DIY tutorial, which is posted entirely online, is an impressive feat that is created using a WiFi dongle, the Raspberry Pi Zero Mini and a handful of other components.

Being that technology and customization have become ubiquitous notions in our modern culture, this DIY AirPlay speaker is an example of a resonating shift in consumer culture. As users begin to realize they can make their own customized products with just a few simple, inexpensive components we could see a decrease in the purchase of OEM items.
