    Someone Jammed Bluetooth Speakers into a Slap Bracelet

    We’ve seen a spirited revival of the slap bracelet in the last few years, with sound effect generators, styluses, and weird watches. Alright, it’s been a motley crew. But, there’s been one other company doing things a little differently in the slap bracelet space, and it’s made for something surprising — a Bluetooth speaker jammed […]

    Recycled Tire Gets Transformed into a Speaker

    Despite all appearances, no, this isn’t a portable speaker. The Seal Recycled Tire Speaker sure looks like it’s ready to hit the road, though — it’s housed in a recycled and freshened up tire. It’s being billed as eco-friendly, which I’m guessing means this beats those tires being added to a tire fire somewhere. Japan […]

    The Cassette Boombox is Back

    We love our boombox throwbacks, but unfortunately, a scant few we see these days actually have cassette tape decks. But, when we do see those, they’re usually being sold by Urban Outfitters, a pattern that continues today. The Radio + Cassette + MP3 Boombox is the latest ideal marriage between past and present. This boombox looks […]

    Life-Like Dalek Speaker is Begging to Exterminate You

    We’ve seen Doctor Who Bluetooth wireless speakers before, but never anything on this level. Massive Audio has new officially licensed speakers, and they aren’t messing around with the details. We’re also pretty stoked that they remembered that the TARDIS isn’t the only thing from Doctor Who that can be made into merchandise. Of course, they […]

    Who Says Speakers Can’t Float on Air?

    Our winner for the ‘What the hell, why not?’ CES 2015 award has to be the Air2. This Bluetooth speaker doesn’t have the best audio quality, isn’t the best speakerphone, and doesn’t have the best battery life, but it does have one thing no one else seems to have—the power of levitation. The Air2 is […]
