Bass Egg Turns Any Surface into an Amplified Subwoofer

Don’t want to put down cash for a huge speaker system that might clash with the decor? No problem – just grab a Bass Egg. With this tiny device, you’ll find that you already have tons of speakers inside your home to begin with – anything with a flat surface.

The Bass Egg is a small wireless device that streams music over a Bluetooth connection. Thing is, by itself, the Bass Egg doesn’t do too well producing sound. What it does do well is produce vibrations. Put the Bass Egg down on a flat surface, and those vibrations will interact with the surface to produce audio. Put it on your table, and suddenly, your entire table becomes a speaker.

That means you can experiment with the Bass Egg. Different surfaces will produce a wide range of sounds, so you can hop around trying to figure out whether your coffee table or refrigerator shelf makes for a better speaker. It’ll be good fun, but you’ll also get good audio if you just use it with a hard, smooth wooden surface – something that will reliably spread those good vibrations throughout the room.

The Bass Egg isn’t available just yet, but you can sign up for email updates on their site.

  1. Bass Egg not available yet… Actually, for the same effect you can generally put any speaker on a table (face down) and create the same result. You get better fidelity with an external speaker in a normal position.
