Boombot REX: The Siri-Enabled Bluetooth Speaker


These days, there are plenty of Bluetooth speakers available, and you no longer have to pay hundreds of dollars to get something decent that sounds good. If you’re looking for a small, but feature-packed speaker, you might want to check out the Boombot REX.

The hexagonal Boombot REX isn’t just a single channel – it’s a 2.1 speaker – with a pair of full-range drivers on front and a dedicated woofer on back. It also has a noise-canceling microphone, and a built-in clip, making it quite portable in a variety of different situations. It connects via Bluetooth to many different devices, from iPods to smartphones and tablets.

There are dedicated buttons to change tracks, adjust volume, answer and hang up calls. In addition, the REX is Siri-enabled, so that you can push a single button on the phone and speak your requests to it and hear them back through the speaker. Beyond all of its technical capabilities, the REX is water-resistant and built to take a beating.

The project is currently raising funds over on Kickstarter, having already amassed more than $85,000 against an initial goal of just $27,000, with 15 days of funding left. Needless to say that this project will be fully funded. You’ll have to pledge $80(USD) to get yours, and you can choose from a blue, green or black version for that price. There’s also a $100 option which lets you choose a custom set of grills in either purple or orange.
