Designer Yuri Suzuki creates a working radio modeled after London Tube designer Harry Beck's Underground.

The Tube map is reproduced on t-shirts, bags, and boxers, but never has it been the subject of a technological pun as complex as this – Yuri Suzuki, designer in residence at Design Museum London, has partnered with engineer, Masahiko Shindo, to create Tube Map Radio, an unmasked printed circuit board (PCB) that maps the technology of a working radio.

 

Following the layout of the London Underground, the design revolves around communication design and responds to modern, sleek electronics like Apple's iPod.
