Touchy Radio, Go Ahead and Stroke It

White Fruit Radio follows how biological organisms organize their internal and external components, both of which are intimately related. Electronics today are often designed linearly with one following the other. White Fruit is made of sycamore for its acoustic properties and an LED substrate is hidden beneath the thin surface. But wait a minute, no knobs or buttons?

The ridges on the top of the radio control volume and station tuning. Simply rub your finger across and watch the LED substrate to see channels change dynamically. The experience is tactile and the fact that the radio is made from high quality wood usually reserved for orchestral string instruments means you get superb sound.
