reDIY is an open source bluetooth speaker project. We are intending to allow people to create a simple, inexpensive bluetooth compatible speaker. We wanted any level of user to be able to create this speaker, regardless of experience.
We currently have two versions of this project. The first is made by creating the shell of the speaker from a cardboard cutout. The second is from a 3D printed shell. Both speakers use the same electronics and fabric housing, it’s just the shells material that differs.
Work was conducted with Michael Lee and Sophy Xie
