Gaurav Tanna and I built a nifty hack for Boston Music Hackday called "BEAM". Beam turns any speaker system into a networked receiver. Beam is a Raspberry Pi based device that you can connect to on your local network over Wi-Fi. You can play your favorite tracks wirelessly from any browser from streaming services like @soundcloud, @spotify, @rdio, @hypemachine etc and beam it over to any speaker system.

If you'd like to collaborate and take this hack into the next phase, feel free to get in touch at contact[at]dirtywaterlabs[dot]com. Cheers!
