Wireless Stereo Speaker Docking Station Laughs at Physics!

What I love is wireless ghetto blasters. What I love is when they look really weird and awesome. And when they are waterproof, have rechargable batteries, and possibly even make use of solar power, wind power, of hydroelectricity; that is the most excellent. Oh also: iPod iPod iPod.

From the suave designer Victor Vetterlein:

YO is a rechargeable and wireless stereo speaker docking station for digital audio players. The system is portable, waterproof, and suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Inside the dock base are lithium-ion (rechargeable) batteries that are capable of powering the stereo system for hours when the unit is disconnected from a power source. The design intention is that a renewable energy source such as solar power, wind power, or hydroelectricity charges the battery packs when the stereo is not in use.

The speakers also contain lithium-ion batteries in their base, and recharge when placed in the stereo base portals. The batteries also provide high-density ballast enabling the speakers to stand upright when removed from the charging ports. The speaker enclosure is designed to amplify sound. The speakers are mounted in the rear of the speaker housing. Similar to a megaphone, the front portion of the speaker enclosure is extruded to increase and direct sound. Two removable rods are mounted between the stereo speakers to stabilize the stereo assembly and provide a lifting handle when the unit is transported.

Yes, please.

P.s. When I say the machine laughs at physics, I’m being facetious.

P.p.s. Victor Vetterlein loves oranges.

    the designer should learn abit more about speaker enclosure design, specificly how sound waves propergate. His enclosures look unique and havent been done before because they are bad speaker enclosure design. Lots of times kids, things have not been “done” before, not because somebody has not thought of them but did and found they were unworkable or just bad.

      Well, I’m no expert in speaker design, but I have designed some for a company around here, and know a bit on the subject. Aren’t you being a bit evil in there? As long as the “handles” in the base of the speakers is not hollow, I see no big problem. He could probably recalculate the volume though.

      That said… I don’t like the design. The speakers look like brushes. And the tiny bridge things between just doesn’t work.

      form over function jin? So it will sound like dog excreament but look fab!!!! not on my watch.

    lithium-ion batteries – or neutronium ? no way would theese speakers stand upright.

  • RememberMe says:

    The design is just plain stupid. I would buy it just to be able to just carry the damn thing around into the shower for music everywhere, but it’s just plain annoying.

    That said, good idea on the alternative fuels thing.

      Plenty of expertise in this area…

      Design love or hate it, concept old news, waterproof wireless speakers been around for ages and I expect the price to be excessive for what is an out of touch product…
