radio orb is a prototype of a globe for kids that can play kids radio stations from around the world. The goal is to promote the inclusion of children with different backgrounds and to inspire them to learn to know other cultures. The globe can visualise the area where the radio station comes from.

It was built with an Arduino Mega, an audio and wifi shield together with about 400 leds.
Parts of the coding were realized together with Sebastian Aßmann.
