Ahhh ... a break from woodgrain, but still keeping it natural.
This supercool bit of shelf-candy is a Rock Radio, designed by Guus Oosterbaan ... a man of ideas with plenty up his sleeve. Simple and clean - just 3 plugs at the back (speaker, antenna, power), and the cracks are deliberate - better reception.
As much as plastic has changed the world and given us plenty of fun stuff, we still say science+nature=joy.

This is pretty nuts - a wooden ipod mini, fully functional, made without glue.
Pls check out Josh D's flickr set for more photos - including the matching dock and i-trip transmitter.
Will wait for the ipod touch version - though the risk of splinters may deter some ...
Okay - let's all just remember who our friends are.
Today was the big launch of digital radio with hype a'plenty - like any of us have a radio that will give us the cd quality sound that digital can deliver. Don't get us wrong - we love a new gadget if it gives us something exciting. Still, nothing keeps the consumers consuming like a bit of forced obsilescence.
And our clock-radio isn't susceptible to any virus either ... good luck world.
