In keeping with the theme of car-related gadgets today, now all you gearheads can combine your love of manual gearboxes with your love of FM radio. As you can probably tell given the lack of any other controls here in order to change the station or adjust the volume on this radio you need to shift gears up and down.

This seems like another one of those gadgets that has a great novelty factor at first but becomes increasingly tedious to use over time. And keep in mind that novices who are used to an automatic radio might be annoyed by the grinding static sound you’ll get while learning to smoothly switch stations with this manual version.
