Radio Messenger

We are flooded with information every instant; new email alerts, latest twitter updates, weather alerts, sports and the list goes on. While these alerts may intrude activities we're immersed in, there is still a desire to stay in touch with this ongoing noise. Radio Messenger is a new audio interface designed to deliver ambient and social information in a way to minimize the amount of time a user gets distracted from his primary task. This is achieved by interleaving this information with music listened to by the user in manner similar to a traditional radio. This will enable the user to listen and assimilate the alerts while tending to other tasks.
