R1 Radio Is Controlled By Rolling

R1

By Evan Ackerman

On Monday we posted about the Q2 radio, which you control by rocking it back and forth. And today, we’ve got the R1 radio, which you control by rolling it back and forth. So, they’re radios. And they rock and roll. How could we possibly justify not posting about them? I mean, the potential for terrible puns or something is just enormous! Or it would be, if these were somehow combined into one incredibly awesome radio. But sadly, the R1 isn’t even a real product yet, although you’ll be interested to know that it’s actually been designed for blind people, who’d have a much easier time using a radio with simple and intuitive tactile controls. Designed by South Korean Il-Gu Cha, the R1 is currently at the working prototype stage.

    I have this one radio that's controlled by knobs on the front. No, it's true!

    REALLY?!?!?!? Amazing!

    See again i still don't see the need to have it missing knobs. I mean it doesn't look good. The rocking cube looks like it would be at least stylish.
