Irrespective of the huge influx of the portable entertainment systems in the recent past, Radio has been an extensive as well as reliable source of entertainment systems, offering a huge variety of programs to the listeners. Giving a makeover to the traditional radio, Danish designer Kenneth Lylover has come up with a portable wireless internet radio with an innovative interaction that minimizes the steps required to find and listen to internet radio stations. Dubbed “Globe I-Radio,” the entertainment system is finished with touch and pressure sensitive Eleksen conductive fabric with a printed world map, which helps the users to navigate, select and enhance the exploration of radio stations available from around the world.
To turn the radio on, all you need to do is rotate the upper ring with your finger, and choose the genre by selecting the color, which change s with a mild tap of your finger onto the ring. Users may navigate the globe, printed on the surface, and press it with finger to get tuned to a particular radio station around the globe. The The Globe Internet Radio makes the technology transparent and the product more attractive for users who just want to listen to the radios.
