The Radioball is an exploratory device that encourages discovery through rich spatial interaction.
Thinking back to the days of old analog radios, the magic of finding unexpected stations in the midst of fuzz was both enchanting and evocative. Compare that with today's digital-based interactions of screens and tact switches; they give us exactly what we want when we want it, but leave no room to stumble onto alternative choices.
A new prototype with new hardware (urethane and SLA) enhanced and more precise functionality, bigger battery and smaller form factor is on the way , stay tuned for a new video coming soon.
