Alloy Total Product Design has created a portable Internet audio player for electronics company PDT, which was unveiled this week. Using a PC plug-in and wireless connection, InTune 200 can access six ‘sound sources’ including Internet radio, MP3 and CD over a range of 9m. Described as ‘high-tech ghetto-blaster’ by Alloy managing director Nick Vessey, the product features an anodised-look metallic finish and cloth-covered speakers. ‘We had to think about where it would sit in the home. It could go anywhere,’ he says. InTune 200 will retail at under £200.
