Totally Geeky or Geek Chic? Lexon Foam Radio

Maybe I'm just a sucker for gadgets made in unusual shapes and materials, but the Lexon Foam Radio, $49, has won me over. The regular metal radio is wrapped in bright foam sponge (no word yet if it comes in additional colors, it was just released in April).

I realize that in this age of MP3 players and online music streaming, radios are a little passé, but every house needs access to NPR and local news. I say if it comes out of something spongey and orange, all the better.

It's strange looking alright, but would definitely be a conversation piece.

I can't touch foam, it's like scratching a chalk board to me.

i think its kinda odd looking the way it is, but maybe if it came in different colors too i would like it better

Not a fan. I don't even listen to the radio in my car, let alone the house. This gadget wouldn't be very useful to me.

i think it just looks cute, very contemporary design, so it might be a little out of place in a house, unless the interiors are specially designed to accept such modern colours..or not :P what do I know hehe
