We’ve all been in a situation where you don’t have any power and you’d like to listen to some tunes. It looks like the Trembo Trunks kickstarter project is seeking to remedy the situation by offering these new powerless speakers.
While these distinctive speakers are inspired by the Sydney Opera House, they’re actually made in Taiwan. I think good-looking desktop PC speakers are always a good thing, since they usually don’t look like much.
I’ve seen some wacky speakers over the years – even a pair that looked like high heels. We even had a Nintendo NES crammed into a shoe. But I can officially tell you that this is the first time we’ve featured a pair of speakers built into sneakers here on Technabob.
I am a big fan of surround sound for everything from my home theater in the living room to my computer. The catch is that I don’t really want wires running across the room; or rather my wife doesn’t want that.
Good ‘ole Razer has been around for years building some really great gear for PC gamers – with some of the best gaming mice and keyboards around. Over the years, Razer has started to branch out into offering other gear like speakers and now controllers for console gaming.
Speakal has just announced a TARDIS speaker for all you Doctor Who fanatics out there. Oh, and if you’re a Top Gear fan, and still like the Stig even though the real Stig betrayed Top Gear and aired the show’s dirty laundry in a tell-all book, you can dock your iPhone in a Stig helmet.
Well, I don’t know that much about Aluratek, but their new Bump Speaker line looks kind of interesting.
For $50 (USD), you get the AMS01F which is an FM clock radio “boombox” that plays music from SD cards or a line-in jack.
Speakers for the home theater can get frighteningly expensive. The first time I saw speakers that sold for tens of thousands of dollars I figured there couldn’t be that much work put into the things. One of those crazy expensive sets of speakers was the Bowers & Wilkins Nautilus, which served as the inspiration for Alfonso de Rojas to build his own a few years back.
The PC version of Final Fantasy XIV will be released on September 30, so I wasn’t surprised when I learned that several FFXIV-themed peripherals were going to be released. But I was surprised by how ugly they look.
There are some times when making a product look retro turns out really cool. Things like the new Ford Mustang and the Chevy Camaro are great examples of how designers can use cues from old products to make something new and cool.
I was all ready to make fun of these Mini Bear Speakers from Juicy Couture when my wife and 5-year-old daughter walked in. The wife got all excited because they are from a designer and my daughter was all giddy because they were pink, they were stuffed bears, and they will connect to “daddy’s big iPhone” otherwise known as the iPad she runs off with at every chance.
I’m not sure what the deal is with all these guys combining Apple tech with wood, but here’s yet another iPod/iPhone dock crafted from a tree.
This dock is finished in cedar wood and includes integrated Altec Lansing speakers.
