Despite the resonating rise of smart technology, the charm of retro tech resonates with many consumers, which is evident with this updated home audio system.

Created by Imgur user cpotier, the Nutone 2090 home intercom system was created as a solution in the 60s and 70s. The user utilized a Raspberry Pi to incorporate a modern display system and upgrade the internal components to give it a much-needed overhaul. The final result is a modern yet retro hybrid home audio system that transforms what was old into something new.

The prevalence of DIY projects in maker culture is becoming more apparent. As consumers opt to DIY even complex projects, products like the Raspberry Pi that enable customized product creation will likely gain more popularity.
