Science Made You an Invisible Speaker

452aa049e0431cd03025b613e9beb1afIn 1887, Emile Berliner invented the gramophone.

And over the next 127 years, speaker technology remained virtually the same.

And by the same, we mean not invisible.

Stare right through Clio, a transparent pane of glass that streams deep, room-filling music from any wireless device, available for preorder now.

Speakers. They’re big and boxy and include a jumble of wires. Well, usually. See, in some cases (okay, just in this case), they’re single pieces of acrylic glass that utilize complicated science-y principles to produce crisp 24-watt sound. And to look all sleek and inconspicuous while doing it.

So the next time you’re hosting a gathering where music would be appreciated, place this thing somewhere that could benefit from 360-degree sound. Somewhere far away from foot traffic. Because it’s capable of streaming audio from your phone or tablet via Bluetooth.

And, also, it’s a really fragile piece of glass.
