Roll Between Presets with the Memory Ball Radio

This curious looking radio alarm clock offers an ingenious way of switching between station presets. There’s no pressing of buttons, no dialing of knobs, instead you simply relocate the magnetic ball to a differing intersection of the grid moulded into the clock’s upper surface.

Eighteen separate presets are available, each being located at the intersections of the moulded grid, with nine being allocated to FM stations and nine to AM transmissions with either AM or FM modes being active at a single time.

Unfortunately, whilst the method of selecting presets is undoubtedly novel we cannot help but feel that this design ingenuity evidenced in the selection of presets is somewhat let down by the otherwise rather humdrum styling of the device – but you may think differently.

The Memory Ball Radio Alarm Clock, which is available in white, black or silver, will operate either from batteries or via a mains outlet and retails for $60.

How Cool is This? You Decide.
