has introduced a new series of products that can convert any flat dense surface, such as a table, into an audio speaker. Three products have been introduced — the $129 Mini Can B15, the $169 Mini Box B20 and the $259 for the Bluetooth Stereo Free-D B25. They’re coming in early November.
The products work using the principle of sound wave transference. The Freedom Driver acts as a sonic transducer, amplifying and driving sound waves throughout the surface of any flat, dense material. Each device includes a wireless remote control, along with an equalizer that lets you modulate treble and base, control volume and turn power on and off.
The B25 model supports Bluetooth Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP), so you can send music from Bluetooth mobile phones or MP3 players. iPods will work using an option A2DP-compatible Bluetooth dongle. The Mini Box and Mini Can both work by plugging into the audio source — iPod or otherwise — directly using a minijack cable.
