Matt Brown envisions offering laser cut paper radios with RFID tags to be invisible direct listeners to radio staions the musician, charity, brand or designer wants the listeners to hear. The concept works with the RFID tagged device being placed over a specially designed speaker with an RFID reader inside...

"This system tries to add a little bit of fun to internet radio, and give people a connection with the artists they choose. The radios themselves would hopefully be cheap and collectible little sculptures, each one accessing unique stations."

We're not sure this is really a viable concept to be adopted in the world of digital downloads, music blogs and MP3 streaming audio. But we're quite smitten with the radio papercraft designs themselves. Beautiful work.
