Plugg speaker is an experimental DAB (digital) radio to explore the interaction between humans and electronic devises. It features a cork that turns the radio feed on when removed.
I’ve never been a fan of those giant sound systems with hundreds of little pieces that require a college degree in sound engineering to put together. I prefer old-fashioned radios like this gorgeous little cardboard radio from monsterstuff.co.uk.
This environmentally conscious radio is designed by Christopher McNicholl and the exterior is made entirely from cardboard. With 4 AA batteries and an audio input cable, it can be taken on picnics or used around the office for some background music that you actually enjoy.
It’s Summertime and you are going to need a radio on all those picnics you are going to be going on, and the last thing you need to for the rechargeable batteries to run down, so why don’t you get a hand cranked radio that also runs on solar power. The Solar or hand cranked radio measures 3.25″ x 3″ x 2.25″ and is made from ABS heavy-duty, durable plastic.
Flexio is a conceptual solar-powered radio that picks up just one channel. It is lightweight, easy to carry and fits into your wallet. Each little paper package has a speaker, filter and solar cell packed into a 10mm wide envelope all of which enables the Flexio to pick up just one channel, but the designers are working on making the Flexio able to pick up channels via WiFi or WiMax.
