A crackly old FM clock radio just doesn't cut it anymore. These days our mood changes so frequently we need an alarm that will wake us up with Finnish thrash metal one day, and soca from Trinidad and Tobago the next.
With that in mind, it looks like Orbitsound's new T4 Radiopod is set to revolutionise our mornings. It puts FM, DAB and even WiFi internet radio all in the one box, then tops it off with an iPod dock. And thanks to Orbitsound's spatial stereo tech, it should sound pretty good, too.
So we'll be hitting that snooze button less often, but we'll probably just spend the mornings flicking through the hundreds of internet radio stations instead...
The Orbisound T4 Radiopod costs £180 and is out this summer. See www.orbitsound.com for more
