I love having music with me everywhere, so I always have my iPhone full of music. Of course the problem is that I don’t always have something to plug it into. I’ve seen little portable speakers designed specifically for this purpose, but the small ones sound absolutely terrible and the ones that do sound halfway decent are usually way to bulky to carry around.
Well, one of my friends (thanks Eric) put me on to the IceKube. This innovative little box basically turns any solid surface into a big, great-sounding speaker!
The box (called the “iceKUBE IT-20 digital vibration acoustic speaker”) produces mechanical vibrations when plugged into an MP3 player or laptop, and when coupled with a (preferably flat) surface, it will turn the surface into a vibrating surface, just like a huge speaker. I’ve seen ultra-high-end speakers that work on this principle, but this little guy puts it all into one of the best, nicest little portable packages I’ve seen.
It works best on glass and wood, but they claim that it also works really well on counter tops too. Best of all, they are pretty reasonably priced at $89.
This this is WAY to cool for me to not go and buy one for myself right now. You can buy one for yourself on Amazon.
OK, I couldn’t contain myself, I just ordered one.
