Immersive sound experience that can be integrated into everyday objects.

“Anywhere” might look like an ordinary umbrella frame, but it's actually constructed out of 10 mini speakers that immerse the user in a veil of sound. Created by artist Dmitry Morozov, it's an early stage design that experiments with the different ways that a personal sound system could be integrated into everyday objects.

The device uses optical relays, an Arduino Uno microcontroller, and a micro SD wav player to tie everything together. Once it's been fitted with a waterproof covering, “Anywhere” could be the perfect way to escape a rainy day, giving you the chance to watch the world go by while surrounded by your favorite music.
