SlaHuRa or Slappable Huggable Radio is a FM and AM radio that uses an accelerometer (tilt sensor) to change volume and frequency. There are no buttons to press or dials to spin. Tilting the radio from side to side adjusts the frequency. Tilting it from front to back changes the volume.

SlaHuRa behaves or misbehaves depending on how you treat it. It likes to be hugged, but once in a while it will misbehave and go off onto a random frequency. To make it behave and again, just slap it to teach it to behave. Likewise, hugging SlaHuRa will promote good behaviour through positive reinforcement.

It "behaves" (stays on the chosen frequency) in direct proportion to how long you "hug" (or hold the radio). The longer you hug it, the longer it will behave. Once you place it back onto a flat surface, it begins to feel axious, and will eventually flip out. If it is behaving "badly" (on a random frequency) you can slap the radio to get it back onto the right frequency.
