A radio can be a simple device as far as controls go- it’s basically just two knobs and with some creative engineering using control rings and such it could be made with just a single knob. Yet designers of internet radios are still trying to simplify it even further to get that clean look of no knobs or buttons. So Cambridge Consultants has come up with the Q2 Cube, an internet radio that is controlled by tilting it in different directions or flipping it onto another side. The whole idea seems like it would make controlling the radio an exercise in complication purely to achieve aesthetic desires. Pretty annoying. The Q2 should be in stores later this year in the UK, no pricing yet.
