From the Portland, Oregon-based design studio New, comes a portable Bluetooth speaker solution for computers, laptops, tablets, and even smartphones. The Zooka speaker is made of durable silicone and produces sound that is five times the volume of built-in speakers of the previously mentioned devices. We are totally digging it.
It’s designed to move and work with your portable device wherever you go and slides onto any iPad or laptop screen without covering your camera lens. The Zooka connects wirelessly via Bluetooth but there is also 3.5mm audio input that let’s you plug in any device if Bluetooth is not available. You’ll get over 8 hours of usage from the rechargeable lithium ion batteries making it super convenient to take with you anywhere. It’s made of medical grade silicone making it long lasting and soft so it won’t scratch your device.
Currently the firm is raising funds via Kickstarter in order to launch the product. Although the project has more than surpassed the fundraising goal, there is more time left to kick in some extra funds before the March 19th deadline.
