There are lots of different Bluetooth speakers available for your smartphone or tablet, the majority of the have a similar design, although if you are looking for something a little more retro, then have a look at the Gramovox Bluetooth Gramophone.
The Gramovox Bluetooth Gramophone is a fusion of vintage design an modern technology, it is a 3:4 scale replica of a 1920s R2 Magnavox horn speaker, and it comes with Bluetooth 3.0.
We proudly introduce the Gramovox™: World’s First Bluetooth Gramophone. Our bold design and vintage sound are inspired by the 1920s Magnavox R3 Horn Speaker. Its form and function are a marriage of vintage and modern aesthetics—producing a timeless piece that allows you to stream nostalgia.
Our S-curve horn is a 3:4 scale reproduction of the 1920s R3 Magnavox horn. It is acoustically-optimized to brilliantly amplify music generated from the wood base. Our final horns will be manufactured out of steel and brass. For our prototype we used stereolithography (SLA) to 3D print the horn. After printing it, we painted/textured the horn black and silk-screened our logo. We chose a clean, classic typeface for a beautiful aesthetic complement.
The team behind the Gramovox Bluetooth Gramophone are trying to raise $100,000 on Kickstarter to put their device into action, and it looks like they have already raised $37,000.
You can find out more information about the Gramovox Bluetooth Gramophone over at Kickstarter, prices of the cool retro Bluetooth speaker will start at $249. It certainly look interesting from the photos, we wonder if it will sound as good as it looks.
