BBC Invents Radio That Tailors Content To Its Listener
Built-in sensors allow this device to change what users are listening to based on the surrounding environment.
The British publishing network has developed a device called the Perceptive Radio, that can customise the content it plays based on variables such as location, time, proximity and background noise.
A proximity sensor, light sensor and microphone all provide the information for the radio to decide on which content it should play. The proximity sensor is currently used to adjust the audio mix of the radio play, adding or removing background sound effects depending on how close a listener is to the device.
