Tech reviews

Google Maps feature opens up a world of fun

Aside from the cascading news around the iPhone 13, rumors of Apple AR Glasses that will reimagine the world, and the stock crises that are threatening Android phones, it’s sometimes good to step back, zoom out, and get a healthy dose of feel-good tech news.

And that’s exactly what our favorite new discovery is – a planetary, green-dotted, and speckled globe, where each dot represents a playable radio station from across the world. That’s the premise of Radio Garden, a mobile and web application that lets you delve into radio from just about anywhere on this blue planet, developed by a non-profit Dutch radio and digital research project.

If you’ve ever been to another part of the country or got completely lost on vacation, but somehow remember the details of a song, its whereabouts, but no idea how to find them, then this could be for you. Radio Garden is a somewhat mind-boggling tool that will let you trawl through radio stations from whence you did once spend a holiday. It’s also for those who simply want something to refresh their musical palette.
