The Hydrogen portable speaker is equipped with supercapacitors to store energy physically in an electric field, allowing the portable speaker to be charged very quickly and be extremely durable. Its creators explain :
“Blueshift products are built to last a really, really long time. Every component, including the supercapacitor bank, can be replaced or upgraded easily. And because all of our products are open hardware, the resources to keep your speaker working are available to the public. All of the files that go into our electronics design are online now, to use in improving our products or inventing your own.
We designed our products so we can build them in small batches. There are no plastic parts, so there is no tooling to build – all of our custom parts are made here in Oregon. The electronics are assembled in the USA. And final assembly happens in our shop in Portland. Our new, super-portable Bluetooth speaker. If you’re looking for a speaker to take with you literally everywhere, Hydrogen is the way to go. It charges fully in 5 minutes, and sounds great. Connects to your smartphone or any other Bluetooth-compatible device. The Hydrogen will retail for $400.”
