Don't let the size of this wildly clever portable speaker fool you, it delivers up to 80 decibels of sound capable of filling up a large apartment living space. Say hello to your iPhone's new best buddy.
The beautiful brilliance behind HiddenRadio is its intuitive design created by John Van Den Nieuwenhuizen and Vitor Santa Maria over a four year stretch. The speaker connects wirelessly to your iPhone, iPad or computer via Bluetooth, then just twist and lift the cap to raise the volume. It can also be used as a slick little conference speaker when you're not annoying your neighbors with an endless stream of Lady Gaga music or use the built-in AM/FM radio on board.
HiddenRadio also comes equipped with a 3.5mm audio input plug that lets you to plug-in any device without Bluetooth. Using the companion iPhone app allows you to seamlessly switch playback on multiple speakers throughout the house. The designers promise over 30 hours of streaming music via the rechargeable batteries.
This Kickstarter project touts the kind of inspiring ingenuity that makes buying into the product launch feel like a rare honor. Backers who pledge $119 will be one of the first to get a HiddenRadio device in metallic silver along with global shipping included. The offer would retail for over $175 which makes it a no-brainer to support. Delivery is expected in March 2012.
