You’ll know Intempo’s past digital radios: it was the company that brought us the mad pink and peacock-emblazoned limited edition DABs last year.
Now, it’s turning digital radio design on its head again with a speaker grille that you can customize with your mugshot, your other half or any other digital photo. The magic comes from a partnership with Mybiggerpicture, which prints your image on to the radio’s grill.
Each radio also comes with two standard grilles to get you started, one with an abstract tree and another with classy wallpaper-like stripes.
The tech inside the radio’s pretty sharp, too, with an NXT stereo speaker deployed to make it nearly as skinny as a photo frame. You also get an FM tuner alongside the DAB one, 20 hours of mains-free battery life, a line-in socket for playing other gadgets through the speaker – a Sony Eric Walkman or iPod should do nicely – and a useful headphone socket for private listening.
You can get the standard radio for £100 now from Comet or Mybiggerpicture; each personalised grill will set you back an extra £15 each. And yep, you have spotted the radio on Stuffmag.co.uk before; we just wanted to let you know it’s finally gone on sale.
