Yousef Saheb Javaher and Ramtin Bidshahri have designed a new desktop modular speaker system called SparkBlocks that allows you to arrange a variety of different components into one speaker system.
Modules include a main speaker block complete with a rechargeable battery that is capable of providing full range sound for up to 4 hours. However if you would prefer to listen for longer battery blocks are available to add an extra 12 hours of battery life.
Other modules include a Tweeter block and Smart block that includes Bluetooth, wireless connectivity and supports connections from both iOS and Android devices. A handy LED block that provides extra light and visuals when required. Watch the video below to learn more about the unique speaker design and the inspiration behind the module speaker system.
The MainBlock, as the name states, is the main module in the sound system. The chassis is weather resistant and made of premium-anodized aluminum. It houses a built-in low distortion amplifier; 4 hours of rechargeable lithium-ion battery life.
The SmartBlock is an in development Linux-based module, which allows users to directly interact with their audio system like never before. Once completed, you can directly answer calls, change songs, download apps, and get notifications. The module houses its own Bluetooth and WiFi card as well, allowing full connectivity.
You can also download music apps, such as Youtube, directly onto the SmartBlock, making it much more interactive. This module has been included above and in the video to demonstrate the potential of the SparkBlocks’ ecosystem. We are working hard to bring this module to make this to a point, which can be used by the masses. Stay tuned!
