Tip and Tilt Wi-Fi Radio

Simplicity itself: the Tip and Tilt Wi-Fi Radio is controlled by push

If you like your audio entertainment portable (which we do), web-connected and completely straightforward, the Tip and Tilt Wi-Fi Radio could well grab you.

Powered from the mains or battery, the Tip and Tilt Wi-Fi Radio uses motion as a prompt to switch channel. There are no fiddly buttons at all. The idea is that you preselect your favourite internet radio stations and give the radio a nudge whenever you’re ready for a change of tune. Given its emphasis on being pushed around, the Tip and Tilt is designed to be used with its rechargeable battery for most of the time, and should provide around 14 hours of radio play before needing to be charged up.

You can only log four station presets at once – one each for left, right, top and bottom. To adjust the volume you push it forwards or backwards. Reseller Firebox says radio industry research reveals that most listeners regularly tune in to no more than four radio stations, so the paucity of options may not that much of an issue. You can alter which stations are selected by plugging in the Wi-Fi radio to a PC or Mac and updating your station choice.

The Tip and Tilt Wi-Fi Radio costs £89 from Firebox.com and comes in a choice of five colours.
