Description

The ChronoTune is a concept design for a time-travelling radio. Instead of tuning to the frequency, one tunes to a year and hears music, speeches, and other audio from that year. Version 1 tunes from about 1850 to 2050. If a version 2 is made, it will tune from the Big Bang to the Big Crunch.
