Vol speaker is a speaker and volume knob in one

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on July 11th, 2011

Here’s a minimalistic approach to a speaker if we ever saw one. It was designed by Hironao Tsuboi for Kent of British American Tobacco. The Vol is a volume knob with a speaker built in. Obviously this makes the Vol speaker very portable.

In fact the only way of controlling it is the dial on top. You use it to switch it on and off and to adjust the volume. If it makes it to market, the USB rechargeable speaker will be made out of aluminum and measure just 2.2 inches in diameter and 1.4 inches in height.

Rubik’s Cube Speaker

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on July 6th, 2011

Here’s another geeky item for your desk or your shelf. This speaker will connect to almost any music source, via a stereo jack and power comes from your computer’s USB port, and a 5W speaker plays your favorite songs. But sadly you can’t solve this cube. It’s just for music.

Great addition to your nerd gadget stash at just $30 even if you can’t twist the thing and puzzle your brain. It’s still a neat retro speaker.

UltraLink UFi UCube USB Speaker

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on May 22nd, 2011

The UltraLink UFi UCube USB Speaker looks like an intercom or something from an old Sci-Fi movie. No wonder we like it. It comes from Ultralink/XLO Products and this portable speaker uses a DSP-controlled power supply, allowing the special Balanced Mode Radiator (BMR) driver to pump out 15 Watts of peak power with a 170-degree listening angle.

Not bad right? That aluminum stand puts the speaker at just the right angle for your listening enjoyment. The UltraLink UFi UCube USB speaker will set you back $149.99.

Posted in Radio by Conner Flynn on January 26th, 2011

I don’t know about you, but Hank Hill will surely love this new audio player that comes in the shape of a gas tank. It’s available in both gold or silver. You would have to really love propane to buy one of these. It has a built-in speaker and an FM radio, and it can play audio files from USB flash drives and memory cards.

This device is powered by built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery, it can also be used as a PC speaker or authentic redneck decoration. It leaves me saying one word. Why?

The Caoon DSLR, MP3 player, speaker

Posted in Cameras by Conner Flynn on December 30th, 2010

Yesterday we showed you a cool Canon EOS 350D savings bank. Today we have another Camera based oddity. This DSLR-themed speaker and MP3 player cleverly dances around the copyright issue by calling itself ‘Caoon’ instead of Canon. Even though it’s a near perfect replica of one of the company’s DSLRs.

It won’t take pics, but will serve as an external speaker for any device connected to the 3.5mm audio port, or as an MP3 player loading content from an SD card or USB flash drive. The buttons to the left of the display are playback controls. It will cost you $82.99.

Apple’s next-gen iPad to get iPod touch-like back, wide-range speaker?

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on December 23rd, 2010

Take this one with the usual grains of salt, but according to Chinese sources the next iPad will have a 3-mm reduction in bezel width, the same 9.7-inch display size, and will have a flattening of the back allowing it to rest better on a desktop. It all sounds very plausible, right?

There’s also a “wide-range speaker” covered with “metal mesh”. The overall unit is said to measure 239 x 186 mm compared to the current iPad’s 242.8 x 189.7 mm footprint. Word is that the new iPads will begin shipping from factories in January.

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on November 7th, 2010

Yubz latest is a Rotating Speaker for your iPhone or iPod Touch. You just dock your device in this speaker and you can watch or listen to your iPhone/iPod vertically or horizontally since the speaker station will turn the device 90°.

It will recharge the device as you are enjoying both music and videos. It features multi-dimensional acoustic performance from YUBZ’s advanced Sound Space 2.0 technology. It’s a tad expensive at $149.99, but hey, it rotates. Yours probably doesn’t do that.

Bone Horn Stand iPhone Speaker

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on October 21st, 2010

Here’s something you don’t see everyday. The Bone Horn Stand uses old technology to enhance modern technology. It’s an un-powered amplifier for the iPhone 4, that works exactly like those old style horn speakers on gramophones. The speaker fits over the end of the iPhone where the built in speakers are.

Then the sound is channeled through the horn, and it supposedly adds 12 decibels of sound pressure to your iPhone’s built in speakers. The device can also be used as a stand.

PS3 surround speaker with subwoofer, remote

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on October 13th, 2010

It’s a good time to upgrade to a PlayStation3, with all of the various things that the console can do. These surround speakers are the latest reason. The bar has an in-built subwoofer and it connects using an optical connection.

It also has analog input for other sources and the device ships with its own remote control that allows users to pick from standard, stereo, vivid and dynamic sound fields. Other specs include a night mode, where the bass is reduced, the subwoofer with 30W of power and front-facing speakers with 10W of power.
