GEAR4, radio Internet/DAB/FM comandata via iPhone
Gear4, brand dell'inglese Disruptive Limited, ha realizzato una Internet/FM/DAB radio basata su chipset Frontier Silicon nell'ambito di una gamma di prodotti che comprende già tre modelli con funzioni diversificate. La HouseParty AirWave include la sintonia DAB, FM-RDS e Web radio e con le sue casse stereofoniche integrate funge da docking station per l'iPod. Ma l'aspetto innovativo, che contrassegna un trend sempre più diffuso di interazione tra dispositivi di elettronica di consumo e dispositivi pc/smartphone, riguarda la applicazione per iPhone che funziona da telecomando Wi-Fi e visualizza, sullo schermo del telefonino Apple, anche le informazioni testuali trasmesse dalle stazioni, come i titoli dei brani e il tipo di programa. Questa particolarità funziona anche in FM-RDS.
HouseParty AirWave costa 150 sterline.
