This year has introduced some incredible speaker designs. Music lovers now have a slew of choices when it comes to enjoying their favorite sounds, ranging from the encompassing Sound orb, audio sensitive flame monitors, and even the levitating Om-1 to look forward to. Now we can add Sony’s LED Light Bulb Speaker to that list.
Packed into the unassuming housing of a light bulb, Sony’s miniature bluetooth speaker offers an impressive array of incognito applications. Both the speaker and the brightness of the light are controllable via a dedicated remote or the accompanying smartphone app. It’s the perfect answer for discreetly immersing a space in audio.
Cutting edge design is never cheap; these new speakers are listed online for ¥23,880 or $199/£127. The light bulb will make its debut in Japan on May 23rd, but there’s been no hint as to when they’ll be available in Europe or the U.S.
