Tip'n'tilt control portable internet radio launches

Move to grove

SANS - Survey on application security programs

CES 2010 UK audio company Armour Home showed off its "tip and tilt" internet radio at CES this week.

The name says it all: the cube-shaped device - formally called the Q2 - is controlled by motion: tip it forward to increase the volume and back to make it quieter. Rotate it sideways a face at a time and you step through the four station pre-sets.

Armour Home's Q2: to change channels, just turn it around

Those four are all it can pick up, over its on-board Wi-Fi connection, but bundled Windows and Mac software allows you to change the pre-sets at will. Just hook the Q2 up to your computer through its mini USB port.

The 8cm cube has its own built-in battery good for up to eight hours' continuous play, Armour Home said. There's a headphone socket on board.

No shortage of colours

The Q2 can remember up to five WLANs, so it's as easy to take to a chum's house or on your travels as it is to move around the house. Again, you set the Q2's wireless favourites using the bundled software.

Small the Q2 may be, but it packs a decent sound, in no small part due to the bass reflex port round the back.

The Q2 is due to ship later this month in a range of colours. It'll cost £65. ®
