Podtique is a modern-day MP3 player with the look and feel of an antique radio. The prototype is built in the enclosure of a 1936 Goldentone radio. The internals were removed, and replaced with a BeagleBone Black-based system, and the necessary mechanical components to reproduce the tuning dial movement.
Tuning the radio selects the playlist (or podcast) to be heard. Between stations pink noise is mixed in to simulate static.
There will eventually be a custom cape.
