Extreme Redesign Contest
College Individual : 1st Place
This innovation is meant to give a computer user more ways to enjoy their ability to listen to the radio by using their hand. By putting a tuning control and volume control on the mouse, it allows the user to find a radio station and turn up the volume with the thumb and “ring” finger.
Since many websites offer free radio stations, the Mouse Radio allows the user to find their station and adjust the volume while completing another task on the computer. The music will then come out of the speakers. Even when the radio is not being used the volume control button can be used to adjust the sound for other programs. For instance, this would allow a computer gamer to turn the sound up while competing in their game.
All in all this innovation is meant to make the computer easier and more enjoyable to use.
The left side knob is the Volume Control, and the right side is the Tuning Knob. Turning the Volume Control Knob can increase or decrease the sound. By turning the Tuning Knob, the user can change the frequency of the receiver to change radio stations.
