Text: Radio receiver designed for the Third World. It is made of a used juice can and uses paraffin wax and a wick as power source. The rising heat is converted into enough energy to power this nonselective receiver. Once the wax is gone, it can be replaced by more wax, paper, dried cow dung, or anything else that will burn. Manufacturing costs on a cottage-industry basis: 9 cents. Designed by Victor Papanek and George Seeger at North Carolina State College.
