As prevalent as streamed music has become, a significant percentage of people still rely on the radio for information and entertainment on a daily basis. This animated radio truly caters to the contemporary need and functionality of frequency listening, based on the way that the user interacts with it.

Jung Younkyu and Jung Jaekyu won a Red Dot Design Award for their gadget called 'Antenna.' Taking the shape of a minimalist white box, the radio has one particularly distinctive feature that gives it its name. This bright red and ball-topped antenna integrates the controls for operating the animated radio. Pull it up to turn it on, tap it to change the channel and maneuver it left or right to alter the volume. Ideal for kids or any particularly hands-on folks, the Antenna delightfully demonstrates the way to update old technology for enhanced usability.
