There’s something innately logical with this new Tip & Tilt Internet Radio gadget. The idea is you load up the 4 inch square radio with four Internet stations via your PC’s USB connection, and then when you want to tune in, simply flip the radio over onto one of its sides. To increase volume you tilt it back, to lower tilt forward. No knobs, dials, screens, messing around.
The manufacturer claims their research shows that most people only listen to a maximum of 3 Net radio stations regularly anyway, even if they audition a bunch of them when they first start. Which kind of makes sense. It sports a rechargeable battery which will last a good while, and there’s a standard headphone port at the back. Retail price will be around £90.00 when it hits the streets later this year.
Users simply select one of their four pre-set radio stations by tipping the ‘Tip & Tilt’ onto one of its four sides. To choose another favourite, simply tip the radio onto another side like a dice. The front side is the speaker and on the rear are sockets for headphones, set-up and charging..
