John Van Den Nieuwenhuizen and Vitor Santa Maria put a new "twist" on radio design with their pint sized Hidden Radio & Bluetooth Speaker, which works in a charming intuitive manner: twist it like your deodorant bar to turn the speaker on to listen to the radio or Bluetooth, twist it further up to increase the single speaker volume!
The HiddenRadio & Bluetooth Speaker is based off minimal, timeless design and user intuition. When asleep it hides all its functions, being silent and unanimated. To turn it on you simply twist and lift the cap; the further you lift the cap the more internal volume is created and will amplify to over 80dB of crystal clear sound. This unique design connects and captivates the user through its intuitive functionality.
This Kickstarter project concept is designed to work for more than 30 hours with both AM and FM bands offered and the option to plug-in non-Bluetooth audio sources, making it a fun/easy device to carry around the house when streaming music, watching movies on the iPad, or simply listening to the radio (how about a waterproof version for us shower 'n shave NPR listeners?).
