This custom radio-like device was made by Autuin from Free Geek Vancouver, who didn't want to be restricted to creating useful devices, so he made this funky little custom number. Here's a bit about it:
The different pieces of this Frankenstein’s monster came together over a period of years. Autuin bought the machine’s shell, an old dead radio, years ago and then was sparked to finally do something with it after purchasing an old Coleman Multifunctional TV Lantern. Ripping the CRT out from one peice of antiquated equipment and plugging it into the corpse of another, Autuin managed to create a seriously awesome retro-futuristic display, and then had to figure out what to put on it.
Ultimately, Autuin settled on using a Markov algorithm to project theoretical (and somewhat garbled) quotes from R. Buckminster Fuller, father of the geodesic dome.
In case of apocalypse, this CRT radio thingy might not help keep you alive, but it should make your time in the fallout shelter feel a bit less lonesome. Or it will drive you insane and you'll become some sort of shelter dwelling madman, either way you can't go wrong when the sky is falling.
