The Mighty Music Invader

A hot glued space invader stuck on a stripped dockstar attached to a router using hot glue and carrying a half glue stick glued over the orange and green led as well as a usb drive with the other half of the glue stick hot glued to the red led and a usb sound device with a green led.


The sound system in the WhateverLab and in the Main Room are controlled by a dockstar running Music Player Daemon. You can connect to it with a mpd client to collaboratively create and share playlists. Streaming from your laptop is also possible by running a streaming server (e.g. shoutcast/icecast) and adding the stream to the playlist. Shared media is automatically indexed.

Install a client for your operating system and set the host in the connection settings.
