The Natural Radio Rocks Out

The term retro-futuristic doesn't seem to fully capture the premise behind this most unusual of radio devices. Devoid of any recognizable button or dials, a Korean designer created the Natural Radio concept to work using actual stones to manipulate the radio's reception and volume...

Depending on the weight being balanced upon the two radial surfaces, the concept unit's volume and frequency are adjusted, making this less of an actual device and more of an art installation piece. It's still an interesting idea ("Honey, can you give me back the speckled white stone and the three black pebbles so I can listen to NPR?").
