Three-Inch Speaker Can Create Enough Sound To Fill An Entire Room
The 1Q is a small but powerful Bluetooth sound system that fits in the palm of your hand and can deliver sound for 30 feet.
The 1Q is a 3-inch handcrafted wood cube that houses a powerful Bluetooth sound system. David Laituri’s tiny wooden speaker fits in the palm of your hand but can deliver sound for 30 feet. It works with any smartphone, laptop or tablet, with either 3.5mm wired or Bluetooth audio out capability. The device has approximately 10 hours battery life and can be recharged with the included USB charger.
The 1Q has already exceeded it’s goal on Kickstarter but can still be ordered for a couple of weeks. The bamboo or walnut versions are available for a pledge of $95, while a red beech limited edition is available for $125. This first production run is expected to be delivered well before the holidays. You can watch the project video below:
During a webinar on Thursday July 13th at 10am, the PSFK research team will be presenting findings from our most recent report, Future of Manufacturing. For this project, we looked at how brands and organizations can meet elevated consumer needs and combat increased market competition by leveraging connected technologies that give total insights to manage their end-to-end operations and the opportunity to integrate cutting-edge technologies to reinvent supply chains.
Christina Agapakis, creative director at Ginkgo Bioworks, discussed how she uses her background in science and collaborates with engineers, designers, artists and social scientists to explore the many unexpected connections between microbiology, technology, art and popular culture.
