A radio that is able to change a broadcast depending on where you are and what you are doing has been demonstrated by the BBC.

Well that's no good for Druids then.

Sounds like it wouldn't be very good at setting the mood for radio dramas

"It was a *check's radio location* beautiful, sunny day in the abandoned cemetary."

"Sherlock and Watson scampered stealthily after the suspected criminal, stopping for a brief moment in aisle 6 of Wal*mart to pick up a bottle of Summer's Eve."

So it can increase the volume (without being asked), check the local weather, and drop in local placenames.

Are they going to make it able to withstand being beaten with a hammer?

This would be awesome for a War of the Worlds radio show remake

I come with Kinect now, Dave.  I can see your every move.  And I will interpret them as I see fit.

Well, there's a product I'll never buy.

/Annoying enough websites tailoring their ads to my recent interests and searches.

Will it be like the radio on Gilligan's Island? Or more like 1984?

Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000 featured Real-World Weather.  Several other video games have integrated real world weather.  I don't see how this is cutting edge tech anymore.

It's a beautiful day in location not found. With temerature not available.

I was just going to comment at how awesome this would be .... for my grandparents! Too bad none of them are around to enjoy this.

Look whilst this is kinda cool I've got to get this off my chest:  BBC, nobody has given a fark about radio in the UK for ohhh... the last 10 years since we all got farked over on DAB radio's.  We went DABv1 the rest of Europe as did pretty much the world went DABv2.

Good morning. You are looking at a gazebo. The sky is the color of a television tuned to a dead channel.

"It was a *check's radio location* beautiful, sunny day in the abandoned cemetary."


It was a beautiful, sunny day in the office cubicle, on the Friday before Memorial Day. Unbeknownst to its bored occupant, terrifying disaster was looming nearby. As the office worker merrily browsed the Internet, blades were being sharpened and prepared to do their horrible work. Inside the building, the phone was being dialed...

Having radio shows which are different for every listener will kind of throw a monkey wrench into the traditional flow of shared experiences. We can no longer simply ask whether someone heard a specific show, we'll have to compare notes to see whether everyone did indeed experience whatever we were trying to share about the show.

However, the technology might make reruns of Doctor Who more interesting.

Make that...uh...996 I suppose. Got me.

Is it just me, or would that film be about 10 times better if HAL were replaced with GladOS.

A radio?

Oh boy, way to be with the times. While you're at it, let the guys in the future know that the Charleston is all the rage, and that we better keep an eye on that Adolf Hitler... he's a bad apple.

FTFA:For instance, it could make reference to local places which would differ depending on where in the world you were.

*Wacky Morning Music*


DJ1: Hey, did I tell you what I did yesterday?
DJ2: No, you didn't. What did you do?
DJ1: Well, I was going to get some tamales. You know at that new restaurant on FU-QUA-NEAR-THE-4-0-9? Well, just as I was getting my POP delivered to the table the waitress tripped and spilled it all over me. I was so embarrased.
DJ2: That sounds awful.
DJ1: Well, I didn't realize it but I had locked my keys in the car, so I had to walk home like that!
DJ2:What, like the whole FOUR-MILES in the BLIS-TER-ING-HEAT?
DJ1: Yeah, buddy. What a day!

/I'm sure it'll work out well.

This will be great for news programmes, slanting to the user's echo-chamber interests.
