This Speaker Tells You When Its Parts Need to Be Replaced

Aesthetically designed and environmentally friendly.

By //Tech

After successfully debuting its Transparent Speaker in 2011, Stockholm-based studio People People has launched a crowdfunding campaign to fund a smaller version aimed at improving the sustainability of electronic items and reducing consumer waste. Utilizing built-in sensors, users are able to receive notifications through their smartphones when parts need to be repaired, replaced or updated. The materials are designed to be upcycled and the speaker can be easily disassembled. “Consumer products are too quickly becoming waste and mostly dumped in landfills,” cites the company on their campaign page. At dimensions of 236 × 188 × 90 mm, the speaker will be able to get updates over the air and support Bluetooth 4.1, Google Cast, Apple Airplay and Spotify. Available in either black or white, head over to Kickstarter to learn more.
