Posted in Review by Conner Flynn on June 24th, 2009

K-box turns tables and walls into giant speakersWe told you about the K-box from Kerchoonz a few weeks ago. The portable speaker that aims to turn nearly any surface into a speaker with an emphasis on bass. It’s targeted at those who want sound on the go, but don’t want to carry bulky speakers with them.

It’s about the size of the iPhone and yes it really does turn your tables, walls and other flat surfaces into giant speakers. It works by plugging into your laptop, portable gaming device, netbook, mp3 player etc. Anything equipped with a headphone jack.

Activetrax AM/FM radio, MP3 speaker

Posted in MP3 by Conner Flynn on May 6th, 2009

Activetrax AM/FM radio, MP3 speakerWe’re always on the lookout for MP3 speakers, so we had a chance to check out this one from Seattle Sports Co. “Activetrax On the go audio”. It’s designed for camping situations and features AM/FM, weatherband and also serves as an MP3 speaker. It comes with it’s own protective case and can operate by either solar or crank power. So it would seem to be ideal for camping.

As an MP3 speaker, it does the job, but don’t expect high quality sound. It gets pretty loud, but as with most of these type of speakers, the louder you crank it, the more sound problems you have.

Wake up to Darth Vader’s head

Posted in Clocks by Conner Flynn on April 29th, 2009

Wake up to Darth Vader's headI can’t think of a geekier way to wake up. Vader should have had the time displayed on his eyes in this fashion throughout all the movies, just to be helpful to others. Because I don’t remember seeing many clocks in the Star Wars universe. In fact, don’t let Lucas see this, or he just might re-edit the whole damn series to include such a thing.

For $30 you’ll get an AM/FM radio and Vader’s head will also act as a speaker for your digital audio player. It’s pretty cool, but what I was really hoping for was to wake up to Vader’s breathing.

X-mini Max II looks like a trash can, sounds like a speaker

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on April 24th, 2009

xminimaxX-Mini likes to make speakers with an unusual design, like these capsule speakers. Now they’re back with some speakers that take speaker design to a whole new level. Dubbed the Max II, they resemble trashcans, which I’m sure is no mistake considering some of the garbage that will enter them.

The new design also features a bigger driver with “twice the bass.” No word on when these will be released in the US. Which is sad because we know you can’t wait to here your tunes through a pair of trash cans.

6 speaker set folds into a cube

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on March 24th, 2009

6 speaker set folds into a cubeDesigner Ji-Hyung Jung is pretty clever as illustrated by this interesting mobile speaker set design. The idea is that you have a cube held together by magnets, that is actually 5 speakers and a sub-woofer.

The whole deal looks pretty sweet once the pieces are out and displayed. And if you want to take them with you, they take up much less room than typical speakers. The volume control is on the top of the sub-woofer. It’s just a concept for the moment, but it’s a great one.

Buffalo Dice iPod speaker

Buffalo Dice iPod speakerHere’s something a little different for your iPod or iPhone from Buffalo. A speaker shaped like dice, if you feel like listening to music is a gamble. The Buffalo Dice iPod Speaker comes in several colors, and doubles as a stand for your iPod.

It’s compatible with the majority of iPods expect of course the iPod Shuffle, so it should work with your iPhone. It sucks that you can’t use them as huge dice though, thanks to the connector sticking out. But at least it’s something different in an iPod speaker.
