People People Transparent Speaker is shockingly less wired
When we peer upon the desks of those hard core electronics nerds, with their bread boards and capacitors and resistors, working out a mosaic of wires just to make an LED glow. Now is the age of minimalist, clutter beating beauty and so we have something as complex as a speaker with a transparent body. What about the wires? Well, you’d barely notice them. Swedish industrial design agency People People enjoyed the attention their ‘transparent speaker’ received in will.i.am and Britney Spear’s music video for Scream and Shout! The speaker is made with high quality components and materials, with a built-in amplifier and a built-in power amplifier with embedded digital signal processing for purest sound.
This project is now a Kickstarter initiative, launched on December 13th, and is past the halfway point in funding. The total amount to be accrued is $120,000. For a fully assembled speaker, you can pledge $490 or $360 for one sans the glass panels.
