Technology has penetrated our lives at a dizzying speed. It’s not just that we have a device that allows us to connect to the Internet from anywhere in the world , take photos, communicate and access multimedia content on demand, is that Even our houses are smart. This is possible thanks, among other things, to the speakers that companies like Google, Apple or Amazon they have launched to the market, all of them with avant-garde designs. But what if you want a retro design, more vintage, more classic ? If this is your case, this device will love you.
This speaker, baptized as SpeakEasy , has been developed by the company Como Audio. This startup, as reported from, arrived two years ago with a really interesting bet: manufacture speakers with the most modern technology inside but with a retro design . So much so that the SpeakEasy could be confused with the classic radios that every grandmother has in her house, with the difference that this speaker has Google Assistant Built-in, you can play music from any device and, of course, offer all kinds of information (time, news, traffic, etc).
It can be used both as a power source and as an external speaker, since it has a built-in battery, which will be optional.
The device will be available in several finishes: dark and light wood, black and white . The dials are built in aluminum, has a three-inch speaker and can be opened from behind to improve bass. You can change the sound from stereo to mono and have a Casio-style digital watch that combines perfectly with the wood finish that you can see in the photos.
The company has launched the project in, where you are very close to achieving your goal. They need 41,691 euros, and, at the time these lines are written, they already have € 31,896 provided by 145 sponsors . They still have 27 days ahead, so they’ll surely get it to market. The SpeakEasy will have a sale price of $ 349 , much more expensive than Google Home although similar to Apple’s Home Pod (with the difference that thisY).
If you are interested, the project is open for anyone to collaborate. If you donate between 200 and 250 dollars you can get an Early Bird edition They would send you home for the month of November. If you like vintage and retro, and want to give a more intelligent point to your home, I invite you to take a look.
