The Exitrip transmitters that we’ll be using to microcast throughout the city on May Day are the brainchild of engineer/artist Ed Bear. Using iPod accessories that became obsolete after Apple introduced a new generation of mp3 players, he reverse-engineers the devices so they can transmit an FM signal from any audio source you choose.
