Pelty Bluetooth Speaker Runs on the Power of Candlelight
July 5th, 2014
A candlelit dinner is can certainly be romantic. A candlelit dinner with fine music would be even better. The latter is what you’ll get with the Pelty bluetooth speaker.
It’s an unusually designed speaker that runs not on batteries or an AC plug, but on thermal energy provided by the candle that’s burning in it. It’s made possible because of the built-in thermo-electric generator, which uses the difference in heat provided by the two different metals that’s in it to generate the electric current.
The entire thing is made from ceramic materials, so you don’t have to worry about the speaker catching fire in the middle of your favorite song.
Pelty is currently up for funding on Indiegogo, where a minimum pledge of $229(USD) will get you one of your very own.
