Bose Wants Kids to Build Their Own Speakers

Bose is offering up a new product that they hope will encourage kids to learn about electronics. The Speaker Cube is a build-it-yourself Bluetooth speaker that is aimed at kids eight years old and older.

With the $149 Speaker Cube, anyone can learn step by step, how to make a device that reproduces music or other sounds. Along the way, you’ll learn about magnets and electromagnets, how sound and speakers work, and about sound frequencies and waveforms. Once the speaker is assembled, it can be customized with different covers or colored lights. Kids should enjoy this if it can lure them away from video games.

Yes, there are instructables all over that will teach you how to make a speaker for much much less money, but some people like to pay more for a big name. It’s all good as long as you learn something.

The Speaker Cube is part of the company’s new BoseBuild education program. The idea is to teach young people about the science of sound. Maybe they also hope to hire these kids that they are teaching in the distant future. Assuming we aren’t all stomped into robot fuel by then.
