SportSync Radio

tambreet mentioned this on IRC. There's now a portable AM/FM radio with a built-in delay machine. The idea is you listen to radio coverage of a sports event, and set the delay so that it matches whatever delays are present in the television coverage. (Possibilities include satellite propagation, digital compression, or "profanity"/Janet Jackson delay)

When I was in high school, a digital delay machine cost in excess of $5000. Of course, the popular Eventide unit was stereo, and had the obligatory dump feature, as well as a catchup feature (so you didn't have dead air after you hit your dump button.) Still, the heart of that machine can now be added to a consumer portable radio for $30. Damn.
