Interesting Engineering

The Mars Bluetooth speaker from Crazybaby, a start-up company based in Hong Kong, is taking a fresh look at speaker design as they have come up with a levitating speaker that can project sound from every surface.

The Mars speaker has a cylindrical charging station and this also doubles up as the excursion subwoofer at 3.7 inches providing a nice bass boost and it also features two USB ports for charging devices as well. Thanks to the speaker being suspended in the air, waves are not absorbed by the surface it rests on and the designer’s claim that this helps when it comes to improving the sound quality.

The speaker is said to be waterproof up to three feet and it can automatically recharge as soon as it is docked in the base. It can be carried around in a bag just the same as any other Bluetooth speaker and it is said to offer up to eight hours of play. There is also an app for Android and iOS devices that works with the speaker.

One feature that stands out is proximity volume. The Mars speaker is able to identify how close the person playing the music is to the speaker and can then adjust the volume of the sound to match. As it comes with an integrated microphone it can act as a speakerphone too so you can answer your calls seamlessly.
