NEWS CANCELLING FILTER

I enjoy listening to the radio. Just to hear fresh music or learn something new. On the other hand entertainment comes at a price. Commercials and news are force fed to my ears twice per hour. So I wondered; wouldn’t it be great to have news free radio?

So why not simply turn off the radio? Well..the thing is radio is different from newspapers or television.

Radio often it is playing in the background while you’re busy working or doing something where a newspaper or the television news are sources that can easily be avoided. Simply by unsubscribing from a paper or switching channels once the evening news is on. News and commercials are fed to your ears and you hear it each hour. Wanted or not.

My solution to this: The News Cancelling Filter!
It gives you the power to take out the news and commercials. It automatically switches away once the commercials start and turns on the radio once they’re finished. No need to manually switch the radio on and off. The filter will take care of this. Nice!

This is the first working prototype which I’m looking to perfect together with you.
