Blicko based in Stockholm Sweden has this week launched a new Kickstarter campaign for their social music device of the same name, that is priced at $129.
The Blicko Is powered by a Raspberry Pi mini PC and has been designed to provide users with a music playback system that can be accessed using a web browser and a URL from any device.
The Blicko music player supports a variety of music streaming libraries, such as Spotify, WiMP, YouTube, and SoundCloud. Watch the video below to learn more and its creators explain :
“Blicko began when we noticed a problem in the way music is consumed and experienced in groups. What tends to happen is that people crowd around the music device and interrupt each others songs.
To solve this we have created a digital take on the traditional jukebox. With the Blicko music box hooked up to your speakers and Wi-Fi you and everyone around are in control of what’s playing. You can access the box from your smartphone, tablet or PC.”
“The Blicko music box plays songs from a queue that can be reached by a simple URL. With our intuitive web-interface you can control the box from any device with a browser. By sharing the URL to your friends, several people can collaboratively select music by queueing and voting on tracks. Users can identify themselves with social network logins and choose to share their activity in real time.”
The Blicko project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production.
