Portable Subwoofer For Your MacBook

Portable Subwoofer For Your MacBook

Not happy with your MacBook speakers? Sound a little flat don’t they? The Bassjump is a USB powered subwoofer that turns your MacBook into a sweet sound system. It looks like an aluminum Mac mini which perfectly compliments the new unibody aluminum MacBooks. Hit the jump for my review.

Music In My Pillow

Music In My Pillow

A cross between the boombox on your shoulder and an MP3 player is the right description for the MU SPACE! Touted as this relaxation portable music system with a mat included, nirvana will be miles away if you use it to catch those forty winks at work! However, investing in the MU SPACE will be cheaper than Sleep Pods. After all it’s for the sake of stress-busting, relaxation & motivation of employees or pepping up complacent teens.

Hallucinating Player Hovers

Hallucinating Player Hovers

The Melody Balloon is on its own trip, and by this I mean it flies, floats, hovers…whatever! While it’s on trip to la la land, the player stays grounded thanks to the earbuds fixed into your ears. Silly as this may sound to some, but children these days find no pleasure in the helium filled balloons, this Melody Balloon is more their types. Kinda like their RC planes, only this one’s flight and play are controlled via the finger ring that it comes with. Conventional folks may want to keep this rooted to the battery recharger.

Creative Music Interaction

Creative Music Interaction

Touchtable is a PMP that is interactive and intuitive. It features a large controller wheel that surrounds the screen and performs just like a turntable. It’s even sensitive to touch and pressure and when you use it in combo with the surrounding function buttons, it facilitates absolute user control over a track, through precise position, timing and pitch manipulation.

Radio Ga Ga

Radio Ga Ga

Flexio is this really awesome radio that’s solar powered and portable. I’m willing to overlook the “only one fixed FM channel” stand for the cute little paper packaging it comes in. I’m sure the dynamics of manufacturing this are going to be reasonable, because one can even use it for promotions and gifts…like ask someone to advertise on its package. The innovative factor comes from the flexible speaker & flexible solar cell. It’s designed to be used within the station-waves range, but could be modified to receive internet radio via WiFi or WiMax.

Feel The Music

Feel The Music

A common misconception about the hearing impaired is their inability to experience the joy of music. They may not hear and process sound audibly but they certainly can feel it. In fact, studies have shown the sense of touch is heightened allowing them to perceive music in a totally different way. SOUNZZZ is a visual, audio, tactile MP3 player designed for the hearing impaired but universal enough for all to enjoy.

Ceramic Speakers, Careful Now

Ceramic Speakers, Careful Now

Our favorite teapot maker Joey Roth is at it again. His Ceramic Speakers made the internet rounds months ago but I had to point out how there’s still nothing like it on the market and if he is to be believed – audiophiles and design snobs alike will both be appeased.

Tanker That’s All Rolly

Tanker That’s All Rolly

On the lines of the pet Rolly by Sony is the Mint Tank Music Player. It’s the sorts that follows you around, obeys your commands and doesn’t complain if you ignore it. Features include USB connectivity, Bluetooth, WiFi, 2 High Output Speakers, Remote Control and endless track system to follow you around. When two tanks are within the same vicinity, they kind of communicate with each other and playback music with 3-D sound effects. Quite an awesome pet!

Don’t Duck Around This Player

Don’t Duck Around This Player

Quack Quack! Ok I won’t kid around this time, but I think Mac Funamizu has matured pretty much in his design sensibilities. The CD player is called Quackie, but the concept looks decent enough for the tweens who endorse stuff like the Mickey Mouse MP3 players. Quackie is thus: There’s a round body that rolls and a black speaker. The speaker is attached to the body at the axis and it rolls around the body. Simple functions of play/stop/next/back and volume up/down are included.

A Radio For Treehuggers

A Radio For Treehuggers

It’s a wooden log and a radio. That ain’t all folks. It’s also solar powered and if Mr. Sunshine isn’t happy that day, there’s a dynamo powered by your finger. I love the giant wooden rotary dials to change stations and volume. The old school retractable antenna nostalgically tugs at my heart too. Sure I have no idea what station I’m changing to but it looks like an ewok crafted it so I totally approve. BTW, 80% of the radio is oak. The rest are radio components. Treehuggers might like it… or will they hate it since it’s made from a tree? Hmmm

Wind Based Acoustic Coupler Radio

Wind Based Acoustic Coupler Radio

Nice name, huh? Actually the name is “Breeze Radio” but I thought it better to make it more technical to get you weird electricity connection lovers in here nice and interested. I recently discovered how easy it is to instal a light fixture. Exciting, huh? Knowing that, I find the concept of a wind based acoustic coupler radio pretty neat! Let’s get a better look at it!

Music and Time On Your Wrist

Music and Time On Your Wrist

We’ve evolved from Walkman to iPod (plus whatever else there is, let’s be honest) and from wrist watch to cellphone-held-clock. Now. What would have happened if instead of the clock merging with the cellphone, the clock merged with the music device? We’ve got wrist tunes, contact!

The Woofer Power of a BEAR

The Woofer Power of a BEAR

Behold, if you DARE, the Eco Woof; the sub-woofer that’s got the woofer power of a BEAR! But CHILL! There is no bear actually powering the “Eco-Woof,” only the power of glass domes. Where wood boxing would normally hold the raw beats exploded forth from the speakers, glass domes and downward facing blasters suffice. The wood grain is so very classy, wouldn’t you say? Oh, and there’s green in it, too!
