Useful products decked with great design and extra functionalities always manage to win over hearts. But a compromise on the basic feature of the product, in the light of “designer” quotient cannot be conceded upon. The Fedlar Walkie-Talkie is one such product. With tinkling LED’s on the boundary of this 2-way radio and an embedded compass, the designer has surely lifted up the style podium for walkie-talkies. But absence of GPS capabilities connotes flaws of the design and is not suitable for expedition in weak communication environments.
Fedlar Walkie Talkie looks good but scores low on functionality. The red-brown contour and the orbit of LEDs can make it as a good décor accessory, if nothing else.
