Thanks to Daniel Kaufman for sending in his great project! Check out more photos of the build on his blog here.
This interactive radio uses light controlled by an aperture to raise and lower the volume. The user controls the tuning by simply touching or sliding anywhere on the mahogany veneer which is embedded with a SoftPot potentiometer. This project takes something simple, like a radio and reshapes the user’s behavior towards it through the interaction.
