When I talk about retro tech, I’m usually going on about stuff from the late 1970s or early 1980s since those were the years that really defined me as the geek that I am today.

The wood and tweed-vinyl construction Crosley Nomad Portable Radio may look like an old radio from the 1930s, but under the hood, it’s all new.

The Crosley Nomad is available exclusively from Urban Outfitters for $72 (USD).
