The flOw wireless interactive speakers is a design concept, from David Boyce, a young English industrial designer, currently working at Jason Bruges Studio, where his brief at the moment is interactive lighting.
But as well as interactive lighting, on the side he has come up with a concept design in sound, with the flOw.
Looking like a high-tech pea pod, the bulb-shaped speakers are to be made of soft silicone. Squeeze them to be pump up the volume, rotate them to knock it back down. Shake them, and the accelerometer inside adjusts the mood of the music. The more you shake, the more uptempo the music.
There’s no detail on how the speakers manage this with the iPod, whether it’s by playlist or the genre tags in your iTunes library. Either way, this a is a fun design, and a good looking design. I hope it gets made.
