Sagemcom RM50 WiFi radio suggests stations it thinks you’ll enjoy

One of the problems we've had with internet radios in the past is that it can be pretty overwhelming trying to sift through the many thousands of stations on offer, meaning we tend to stick to the same old channels.  Sometimes, we even find ourselves missing the analog days of spinning an FM dial.  Sagemcom's new RM50 internet radio claims to fix all that, with a "Smart Random" button that automatically picks a different channel for you based on the type of stations you listen to most often.

Moshi Voice Control Digital Clock Radio Makes Waking Up a Lot Harder

Moshi Voice Control Digital Clock Radio Makes Waking Up a Lot Harder

There has to be a fine line between our alarm clocks getting smarter. Or, maybe not smarter, but rather easier to control. Because, we don't know about you, but the only way our alarm clock wakes us up, is if we have to get out of bed to turn it off. Then again, there has to be something said about an alarm clock we can talk to. And, even better, that does what we tell it to do. We love our voice commands, after all.

Grace Digital Audio Allegro WiFi radio streamer packs Pandora support

With WiFi digital media streamers getting cheaper and cheaper, if you want to charge a premium price then your device needs to offer something out of the ordinary.  Grace Digital Audio reckons their Allegro portable WiFi radio/streamer ticks that box by virtue of its sound quality; the Allegro packs a Class D 8 watt digital amplifier, outputting via a single speaker, and can be run off of mains, regular or rechargeable batteries.

As well as over 17,000 radio stations, 20,000 plus on-demand programs and over 35,000 podcasts, the Allegro can access Pandora for streaming audio.  Connectivity includes WiFi b/g/n, a 3.5mm headphone jack and a stereo speaker jack, and you can control Pandora's thumbs up/thumbs down rating system directly from the mediaplayer itself.  The company also offers a free iPhone remote control app.

Gesundheit Radio sneezes away the dust [Video]

One thing we didn't see when we visited Texas Instruments last week were the fruits of the company's Attenborough Design Group, the experimental research group who, in 1972, designed this Gesundheit Radio.  Of course, that's probably because there was no such group; the radio - which incorporates a set of bellows and sneezes periodically, so as to remove dust from the sensitive microprocessors - is actually the handiwork of design student James Chambers, who felt a comprehensive back-story could only help his project.

DIY WiFi radio based on OpenWRT

DIY WiFi radio based on OpenWRT

WiFi radios have fallen to a price point where you have to be pretty DIY-obsessed to bother making your own rather than picking one up off-the-shelf, so we're all the more impressed by Gary Dion's effort.  Starting from an ASUS WL-520GU wireless router, he threw in a USB audio adapter and a VFD display together with a custom enclosure to match the rest of his A/V setup.

UK radio manufacturer Revo have announced their latest model, the DOMINO D3, a DAB/DAB+ digital radio with integrated iPod/iPhone dock and internet radio streaming.  The DOMINO D3 also supports Last.fm streaming, and the whole thing has a soft rubber coating that, while stopping short of making it waterproof, at least does make it fetishistically touchable.
