This Dalek was caught invading CES 2014. He was not built on Skaro however, but by car audio company Massive Audio for display at their CES booth. I bet he caught tons of attention. It is actually a giant speaker.
Another day, another gazillion Bluetooth speakers. Vizio recognizes this lack of market differentiation, and has come up with a wireless speaker which truly ups the ante. Vizio’s upcoming series of portable speakers will fully support running Android apps on a built-in touchscreen.
Another CES, another 10,000 Bluetooth speakers. Yawn. At least we have to give ION a little credit for thinking slightly outside the box with their latest Bluetooth speaker – the Road Warrior.
This beast of a Bluetooth speaker offers up a substantial 200 watts of power, and is designed for pumping out thunderous sound wherever you go.
If you have ever wanted the biggest speakers you can get your hands on, AudioOrbs might be just what you are looking for. AudioOrbs are claimed to be the first and only speaker that you can actually sit inside of.
Remember when we used gadgets called “tape recorders?” Well, now you can relive the prehistoric era of portable cassette tape recorders, but with your iPhone in place of the cassette.

I love speakers, but I have to say that I’m impressed by some of the acoustic amplifiers that have been made for iPhones and iPads over the years. They certainly do amplify the sound, and it’s always surprising how loud the resulting sound can be.
A few months ago we heard about a supercapacitor designed by a high school student that could lead to quick charging and longer lasting mobile phones. The Blueshift Helium speaker gives us a taste of that future.
There’s always something cool about any gadget that lights up like a Christmas tree. Whether you like it or not, they will grab your attention. This new JBL speaker is no exception. It looks like a great add-on for impromptu house parties.
These days, Bluetooth speakers are a dime nickel a dozen, but that doesn’t stop these wireless devices from being quite useful since most people use their phones to play their favorite tunes these days. This small Bluetooth speaker is rugged and not that expensive.
Bluetooth speakers all start to look the same after a while, so whenever I come across a wireless speaker that breaks the mold, it makes me happy that industrial designers haven’t given up the good fight.
We’ve featured a sound system called the Transparent Speaker, which really only has a glass case. Two post-doctoral fellows at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) made an actual transparent speaker. It’s stretchable too.
There are plenty of Bluetooth boom boxes available, but I have to say that this one from Bēm looks quite interesting. The overall shape is reminiscent of a traditional boom box, and the handle will let you lug it around quite easily from place to place.
It seems there are a squillion different Bluetooth speakers on the market these days, so how do you choose which one to buy? You could pick one because of its size or sound quality, or you could just pick one because it looks cute.
There are plenty of audio systems available for your home, but not all of them look as beautiful as this console from Ruark Audio. It’s got lots of retro appeal, and will look awesome in a number of different decors.
