The Sound of Bamboo

Bears like it so why not humans? This bamboo inspired stereo looks good (ignore the pink) and thru the natural acoustics of cylindrical objects, sounds good too. But it’s not just nature-ry, it also has every accoutrement a technophile would want. Think wifi enabled, wireless speakers, integrated LED screen, MP3 line in, remote desktop syncing, radio, and yes – cd player.

There are 3 parts to the whole system. You have you right/left channel wireless speakers, a base station that houses the subwoofer, and a control ring. Now you could attach everything and use it as a standalone stereo or connect the speakers together with the control ring. A single charge should give you 12 hours. The control ring between them contains the basic music controls. The base station can also wirelessly sync music with your computer, should you be the anti-cd type.

  • This cannot be good for you, if you sleep with it.

    • Cellular phones have long-range capability while WiFi (and Bluetooth to an even greater extent) is very limited, meaning that WiFi poses a very low threat in comparison.

      I agree, however, that sleeping with a wireless device such as this may pose some level of risk. Besides, I would be worried about damaging the device in my sleep.

    If it’s setup to serve as a wifi “wireless speaker” then why does it sync? And come on, this is a design page, by designers for designers, yes? You don’t have to throw us buzz-words like “mp3 input.” It’s a 3.5 input jack.

    Rechargable, mobile speakers that play music from your server and relay controls back to them: good idea. This is almost that. Rechargable, mobile speakers with an illegible display, unnecessary memory features, and standard configurations that prevent alignment of the headspace with your head? That’s a bad idea.

    Yanko, when did we become as impressionable as the consumers?
