Origaudio Foldable Speakers: Lean and Green Lightweight Sounds
OrigAudio (as in “origami + audio”) speakers are perfect for trips to the beach, or for whenever you just want to share music without much hassle. Let’s face it, a couple of 3.15″ 1-watt speakers won’t satisfy audiophiles and they’re definitely not good enough for parties, but the fact that they’re foldable and don’t need a power source – not a single battery or USB cable needed – means that they’re perfectly portable.

Seriously folks, where’s the boogie in this box? Audio-Technica’s idea of a portable speaker clocks in at 5.7 lbs and looks like a young, chubby amplifier. Its tough-looking case houses two 70 mm full range speakers with an installed capacity of 2W each.

Piano Dining Table: Music, Munching and Money

My Pet Speaker: a Speaker for Pets, Not, Unfortunately, a Pet Speaker
How awesome would it be if you had a speaker as a pet? It won’t poop, won’t bite, and doesn’t need to be taken out for a walk. It won’t grow old, won’t die, and it can play music!

Vj Fader’S Fadertouch Touchscreen a/V Interface Lets Audience See What He’S Playing
Live audio-visual artist VJ Fader tipped me off about this cool visual interface he built for manipulating music and images in real-time. The faderTouch 3.0 isn’t just your run-of-the-mill sequencer. Nope, the unique portable device features an innovative rear-projection system that allows not only VJ, but his audience to watch the on-screen action.

I can’t believe I didn’t know about Turbo T. Double until today, when the bbps‘ Dan Zuccarelli posted the “music video” for one of Turbo T. Double’s songs, which is about Balrog’s take on Chun-Li. Yes, it’s a dude rapping as Balrog who’s talking about Chun-Li.

V-Moda Crossfade Earphones: the Harley-Davidson of Earphones
With its metal extension arms and partially metal cups, I think V-Moda’s upcoming Crossfade earphones are only for people with – or people who want to have – beefy necks.
