Array
Gear  |  MediaPlayer
This simple and beautiful concept radio design from John Van Den Nieuwenhuizen. The Hidden Radio - Lift to hear and Rotate to tune. To increase volume, slide the tube up(By the lid moving up this increases the base speaker chamber). The visual feedback is obvious: open = loud, closed = quiet. By rotating the cap this allows the users to tune the raido. There is no readout, but the LED light in base becomes brighter or darker with tuning. I like its volume change design.

Invented by the Polish audio designer, Stephan Kudelski, and has been manufactured at the Kudelski/Nagra factory in Cheseaux, Switzerland since the early 1960s.
