Marc Berthier and Tykho Lexon created a radio built completely from splash-proof green rubber. This rubber radio is now on exhibit at New York's Museum of Modern Art. It can pick up FM and AM. Just turn the green dial to tune your favorite stations.

Implications - This rubber radio is one of many products that boasts an update on an older piece from pop culture. The rising popularity of iPods and MP3 players has driven the radio to endangerment, with designers and companies in the technology industry looking to fight back through updates such as these. Ultimately, the technology industry is a battlefield in this ever-changing digital age.
