Music is in the air with the Radio Bit! Make your own wakeup radio! Auto search for radio stations or tune for channels manual. With the different modes everything is possible. The Bit can be used stand alone(only needs a power bit) or in combination with other Bits.

The Bit also has a headphone connector which volume is adjustable! When connected to e.g. a headphone this will also serve as an antenna. You can also extend the antenna by using the antenna connector. 
In case of auto search, build-in memory will store the radio station when unpowered.

Mode 1: Auto search 
Left button on Bit: Scan backwards 
Middle Button on Bit: Scan forward 
Right button on Bit: Next mode 
LittleBits input: Scan forward

Mode 2: Auto search extended 
Left button on Bit: Scan backwards 
Middle Button on Bit: Scan forward 
Right button on Bit: Next mode
