Description

When the digital revolution began gathering steam (or should that be warp speed?), plenty of pseudo-pundits predicted the imminent demise of radio as we know it. Thankfully, they were right and wrong in equal measure. Because although crackly old Noel Edmonds' shows are now a thing of the past, the future belongs to DAB digital radio, a revolutionary format that pretty much renders old-school radio obsolete.

Bug DAB Radio: Side shots

Bug DAB Radio: In location Why? Well, for starters DAB sounds flippin' amazing, is interference free and allows listeners to tune into DAB only stations as well as regular radio. You can also see which track you're listening to via displays that show track titles, artists' names and full programme details.

But what's that got to do with this weird-looking thingamabob called the Bug? Well, believe it or not, this retro space-age gizmo (a real dead ringer for Jonny5 from Short Circuit) is actually a state-of-the-art DAB digital radio, and it's not just groundbreaking in the style stakes. The staggeringly brainy Bug can pause, rewind and record live radio. No, really!

Bug DAB Radio: Animation The Bug's ingenious Sky+-style 'ReVu' technology means you can pause a track, make a cuppa, and resume listening as you dunk your biccies. If you like what you hear you can rewind the broadcast and record it to the Bug's built-in memory. So now you'll never have to fumble around for the 'rec' and 'play' buttons when your favourite track comes on. (Are we showing our age here?).

Bug DAB Radio: Detail As well as the internal memory you can also record directly on to an SD card and download tracks to your PC or MP3 player via the Bug's USB port. You can even play existing MP3s on the Bug. Oh yes, the Bug also has an alarm function that can wake you up to your favourite station. Feature packed? Just slightly!

Granted, the Bug does look a little outlandish in an ET-meets-a-shower-attachment kinda way, but that's because it was designed by visionary fashion guru Wayne Hemingway. And any radio that's as revolutionary as the Bug deserves to look a bit individual. It doesn't look like a normal radio, because it isn't. So come on, don't just get digital, get Bugged!

    Radio how you want it, when you want it
    • Phone ringing?
      When you're girl/boy/other interrupted: pause live radio, do what you have to and then restart the radio where you left off.

    • Missed something?
      Yeah, we know, you were listening really. Don't worry rewind live radio (5-12 minutes depending on transmission) and play it again. Yes that's right, REWIND your RADIO.

    • Really like that track?
      If you need that track, even thought it's almost over, don't panic. Just rewind and hit record (for personal use only). Playback your recordings or MP3's on your bug or convert them to MP3 on your PC for playback anywhere.

    • Out and about?
      Too busy to stay in and listen to the radio. Relax. Set the timer, record your favourite programmes to SD card (SD card not included) and listen to them in the bath/in bed/in your shed on Sundays. Ahhhh.

    • Rise... And shine?
      Mornings. Ease the pain by waking to your favourite station. Set special weekday and weekend settings for your well earned lie-ins. Choose different alarm times and stations for you and your partner (to a maximum of one partner – partner not included).

    • Bed or breakfast?
      So at night you like evening shows and in the morning, err, breakfast shows. Well that's just plain weird, but don't worry, the Bug understands your eccentricities and will happily let you go to sleep to one station and wake to another.
