This Arduino FM Radio project with a 3D printed enclosure! Let’s see what we are going to build today! As you can see, we are going to build an Art Deco style FM radio receiver. The design of this radio is based on this spectacular 1935 AWA radio. I discovered this old radio while searching online and also in this book about the most beautiful radios ever made. I loved the design of this radio so much that I wanted to have a similar one. So I devoted a month of my time to build my own.
As you can see, I have used a Nokia 5110 LCD display to display the frequency that we are listening to, and I am using a rotary encoder to change the frequency and this knob to increase or decrease the volume. I don’t know if you have noticed, but I am using a custom Art Deco font on the LCD display. Also, if we listen to the same radio station for over five minutes, the radio will automatically save the station to its memory so the next time we turn on the radio, it will automatically tune in to the frequency we were using before. The radio also features a built-in Lithium Battery and the appropriate charger so it can last on batteries for days.
