Flexio solar powered FM receiver is paper-thin

How do you listen to radio these days? Perhaps you’re carrying a laptop capable of streaming internet radio stations or you’re probably using your mobile phone to listen to your favorite music.

But here is something very unusual. Industrial designers Wu Kun-chia, Wang Shih-ju, Chen Ming-daw and Liou Chang-ho have designed the Flexio – a solar powered FM receiver which comes with a flexible speaker and a flexible solar cell, allowing you to store this radio in your wallet.

Apparently it is only tuned into a specific frequency, but it could be modified to receive internet radio via Wi-Fi or WiMax.

Would you get one? Or perhaps radio really is a dead medium?
