According to Firebox.com, this is the “world’s 1st portable WiFi radio”.
The wireless Revo Pico WiFi Radio ($297) automatically links to any broadband WiFi connection to stream both live and ‘Listen Again’ internet broadcasts.
There’s also a built-in FM receiver, in case you happen to be at a place where there’s no WiFi connection available – scary thought, don’t you think?
The rechargeable battery will give you up to 8 hours of power on one charge.
With no software to load the Pico is truly idiot-proof. Stations are listed alphabetically by country or music type, so you can listen to funk from Finland, rap from Rhode Island and Motown from, erm…Morecambe. It even downloads the latest station list every time you power up.
The Pico will also play the music files stored on any WiFi enabled PC or Mac. What’s more, this incredible box of tricks doubles up as a loudspeaker for your MP3 player. Simply plug in using the supplied cable. Throw in a smart remote control and you’re looking at the greatest thing to happen to radio since Marconi put on his thinking cap.
