Boom Boom is a wireless speaker offering voice feedback and gesture control, as well as a slew of hardware features that enable future upgrades.
We recently wrote about the Aether Cone, a speaker that learns how users interact with it in order to play music tailored to them. Now, a new product called Boom Boom is a wireless speaker that offers voice feedback and gesture control, as well as a slew of hardware features that enable future upgrades.
Created by Binauric and designed by Mathieu Lehanneur, the polygon-shaped device connects to users’ devices via Bluetooth and is specifically developed to provide rich audio whether it’s playing music or streaming a Skype conversation. The speaker’s built-in microphone also enables voice control, while a motion sensor also lets users control with gestures, although there are also standard buttons at the front. Additionally, Boom Boom doesn’t engage it’s users with bleeps and vibrations, rather using a realistic human voice to greet them and let them know when they need to recharge its batteries. Finally, the device also comes with an accelerometer and light sensors that currently aren’t used for anything, but are ready for future features.
Boom Boom retails for EUR 199 and ensures that owners won’t need to invest in a new device every few years to take advantage of novel features, requiring only a software update. Will we soon see other electronic appliances begin to include smart sensors as standard in preparation for new developments?
