Posted in Radio by Conner Flynn on March 9th, 2011

Are you green and also like to listen to music in the shower? If so, then check out this new radio called the H2O Shower Powered Radio. The radio connects directly to your shower hose and uses the water pressure to charge its internal battery for playing.

The radio’s H2O micro turbine is spun by the water flowing through the case which powers a generator that charges the battery. Hopefully it doesn’t require super long showers to charge it up.

This device is powered by built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery, it can also be used as a PC speaker or authentic redneck decoration. It leaves me saying one word. Why?

Posted in Radio by Conner Flynn on June 3rd, 2010

Dedicated WiFi radios haven’t really taken off in the U.S. Probably because it’s hard to find a decent, small, and pocketable WiFi radio. However, here’s one to consider. The new ViewQuest Pocket WiFi Radio claims to be the smallest portable WiFi internet radio in the world.

The device will cost you $131. But sadly for this gadget, for just $199 you could get an iPod Touch and install some internet radio apps, getting more bang for your buck. But the choice is yours of course.

It also features some USB charging sockets and a pair of 12V DC power sockets. It looks like it will take some abuse, which is a good thing if your co-workers don’t appreciate your taste in music. Definitely looks like it can take a hammer hit or two.


Sneezing electronics are the future

Posted in Radio by Conner Flynn on February 10th, 2010

If there’s one thing I hate, it’s how dust gets sucked into laptop vents thanks to the cooling fan. It can clog things up and affect performance and shorten the life of electronics in general. We need to take a cue from this radio. Once every six months, it sneezes, getting rid of dust that has accumulated inside.

It gives it a longer life and keeps things running cooler. Therefore sneezing is the future of electronics. As long as that sneeze doesn’t come with a cough and a runny nose anyway. I ain’t playing doctor to my radio.
