The Monkey Radio was designed by Rudolph Schelling Webermann for Palomar. The idea was to create a radio with the features of easy mobility. Not willing to take the usual route of throwing in a strap, the designer chose to add that function to the radio’s antenna.
Rudolph made use of spring steel for the antenna, allowing it to perform its usual functions, with the added task of holding on to objects. The antenna works as the monkey’s tail, holding on to objects and keeping the radio fixed to its position.
The Monkey includes a 3W wireless speaker and a lithium-ion battery rechargeable through its micro USB port. It is priced at 69 Euros and will go on sale March 20.
