Eclectic Curiosity

Here’s a couple of really cool audio product inventions – both out of the UK.

First, Ellula and their “Hot-Air” inflatable speakers. The speakers can be blown up like a beachball and then attached to a regular stereo, discman, game console, whatever. Very portable, even with the small battery pack – apparently the winner of the “best innovative product” at the 2001 National Incentive Show.

The other is a little mouse-sized device called the Soundbug. Attach it to any hard, flat, glossy surface (like glass or metal) and it supposedly turns it into a speaker. It can reach levels of 75dBm, be arranged to “broadcast” in stereo, and it plugs into a typical 3.5mm outlet. Could make for some interesting use of sound in a boardroom presentation!
