aiFi Stackable Bluetooth Induction-Based Speakers
Tuesday Jan 6, 2015 (00:07:53)
There are a lot of Bluetooth speakers on the market, which is why it was refreshing to see the unique things aiFi is doing with theirs. Not only can you use a single one like a traditional speaker, but you can combine them to add functionality.
Whether you are looking for portability, music or television, there is a configuration for you. Odd numbers of speakers act like a soundbar, adding virtualized surround, while even numbers add depth through enhanced bass. Stack them speakers into both configurations to get both capabilities. The added range is endless.
Using induction and an internal computer system, the speakers can determine their position and configuration, and even pass the sound from the main speaker to its partners; no need to any wires or special connectors.
The speakers are not available retail yet, but you can pick them up on Indiegogo right now, or wait for them to hit store shelves this may.
From laptops and Lumia to Surface and Xbox, get it at the Microsoft Store.
