This may well qualify as the strangest radio I’ve ever seen. Not only doesn’t it have any outward controls or indicators, it also rolls around freely on a tabletop.
That’s because the very things that make it roll also change the channel and the volume. The volume and channel knobs are built into the underside of the radio.
While it definitely gets some serious points for being compact enough for anybody, I can’t see people readily using this thing. The biggest problem I can see is that there’s no way to tell what channel you’re on short of hearing it on the radio. There’s no indicator to tell you what channel you’ve tuned in. That and let’s face it, radio isn’t as big as it once was unless a clock or a car is involved. That’s not the case all the time, but in all honesty, that’s the case most of the time.
So this is a very interesting idea, but sadly, an interesting idea alone can’t make a good product.
