A team of developers at Authentic based in Tokyo, Japan, has created a new waterproof and wireless surface speaker named the Tough Beat. The unique speaker can be positioned on any flat surface to create a space filling sound system, and due to its waterproof construction the Tough Beat can be used both indoors or outside.
Unlike a traditional speaker the Tough Beat creates vibrations that transform the object it is attached to into a resonating speaker system. “Place the Tough Beat speaker on a wall, table or any flat surface to turn your space into a vibrant, live show like experience. Tough Beat packs Bluetooth and wireless charging technology into a waterproof unit to eliminate those vibe-killing annoyances from traditional portable audio devices.”
Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the construction, design and features of the new wireless speaker which has this week launched via Kickstarter to raise the required funds it needs to make the jump into production. Pledges are available to super early bird backers from £78 or ¥11,448.
