The Boom Boom Bluetooth speaker acquires new abilities the longer you own it.
The portable speaker has a unique polygon shape with fingertip controls and a soft touch design. It comes with basic features like compatibility with iOS and Android devices, music playback, voice and language features, and speakerphone / conference call capabilities.
It is also loaded with extras like microphones, light sensors, and an accelerometer – technologies that turns the Boom Boom speaker into an open platform that can take on new features as they are developed without needing new parts.
A post on Wired touched on what Lehanneur and Binauric founders Markku Palipea and Pierre-Henri Samion envision the Boom Boom to become in the not-so-distant future. According to Lehanneur, the device can even be configured to not only play but also make music by taking advantage of the capabilities of the built-in accelerometer. Shaking or moving the speaker could possibly transform the music into something entirely new.
Binauric is reportedly planning to release an app-controlled recording feature for the speaker in a few months. The new feature will allow users to record voices and sounds. The creators hope that the feature would be the first of many.
Binauric has given Boom Boom to students at ECAL so they can play with the device, take it apart, and figure out new functions and features for the device.
