Tools for radio waves hunters

Third part of part of Strangely Familiar. Unusual Objects for Everyday Life.

Oren Horev , Myriel Milicevic (who had worked also on the Zone project) and Marcos Weskamp designed the Amazing All-Band Radio, three innocent-looking devices that allow users to hunt short, medium and long radio waves from the comfort of their home.


The antenna of the Microwave Boombox captures the high-frequency signals of wireless communication devices and translates them into sound (pictures above).

Radio Radio tunes into different wavelengths physically, by extending the string-antenna. The longer the string the higher the wave frequency (below right).
