While a standard radio might not be the most sexy gadget out there these days the new Pure Digital Evoke-1S is catching our eye. This isn't just because it supports DAB/FM broadcasts - but also because it's being marketed as an environmentally friendly tech toy.
The Evoke-1S is pretty much your standard DAB/FM radio for picking up digital radio broadcasts in various parts of the world. You get scrolling text on the OLED display to see what music is playing, up to a full day of portable listening via the rechargeable battery, enhanced audio output and an auxiliary input to connect a device like an iPod.
Sounds pretty blah, right? Well, as far as eco-geeks go, it wins some points for at least trying to be eco-sensitive. This stylish-looking radio has a standby power consumption of under 1W, uses a rechargeable battery and is finished with a water-based varnish. You also get packaging made mainly from recycled material and soy-ink based documentation printed on recycled paper.
This DAB radio is apparently not the first eco-gadget developed by Pure, which markets such products under the EcoPlus label.
