With personal devices becoming more widespread, and nanotechnology evolving in leaps and bounds, the way we interact with our devices is becoming more personal and more intuitive.
This seems like a big step forward in this area. Designer David Boyce’s innovation is a set of speakers that you can hold, squeeze and shake.
Essentially flOw Wireless Interactive Speakers is an iPod speaker dock, but the cool part is that you use tactile feedback to control volume and playlists. Squeeze the speaker to pump up the volume. Turn the speaker upside down to ‘pour’ away the volume. Shake the speaker to jump to the next track.
I’m not sure how viable this is for parties, but this seems like great fun for kids and for chilling out at home with some samba or salsa music.
It’s a concept right now, so no word on pricing or availability, but I can really see this “shaking” up the speaker world.
