Cool Things: Hidden Radio & Bluetooth Speaker

HiddenRadioSpeaker

I’ve seen a lot of good Kickstarter projects over recent months, but the Hidden Radio & Bluetooth Speaker may be the very best I’ve seen yet. This is a simple, elegant, and versatile wireless speaker that should be a hit with a lot of iDevice owners (and even those poor souls who use other platforms).

Here’s a little slice of its description at Kickstarter:

The HiddenRadio & Bluetooth Speaker is the simplest and most intuitive product ever.

ELEGANT INCONSPICUOUS DESIGN, SUPERIOR SOUND

The HiddenRadio & Bluetooth Speaker is based off minimal, timeless design and user intuition. When asleep it hides all its functions, being silent and unanimated. To turn it on you simply twist and lift the cap; the further you lift the cap the more internal volume is created and will amplify to over 80dB of crystal clear sound. This unique design connects and captivates the user through its intuitive functionality.

Because of its compact size, Hidden Radio can be used to pump up the volume when gaming, watching video, or just enjoying your music library on your iDevices.

I watched this video demo of the product and became a backer seconds later. It has obviously struck a major cord with lots of people – as the project has gone way beyond its funding target of $125,000 (it’s currently at over $700,000).

I’d be surprised if my colleague Joe finds anything more impressive than this at CES today.

Check the Hidden Radio Kickstarter project out when you have a moment. A lot of their backer pledge levels are already sold out, but you can still get in (at the time of writing) for $119 and get one for well under the retail price of $175 when it launches:
