This DIY Project Lets Makers Create Custom AirPlay Speakers

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.
