Everyone wants a colourful life, not about something personal, but the things they own or they had. iHome‘s new iP76 LED Color Changing Tower Speaker has the potential — if properly marketed — to be a blockbuster new audio system for iOS users to have such colourful life even at home.
Shaped like a three-foot-tall tower, iP76 features four speaker drivers and 16 clusters of LED lights, enabling it to change colors either independently or in sync with the music it’s playing; it can also be used as a dimmable lamp, and kept in a single solid color that you prefer. Because its LED lighting system has received a radical overhaul from earlier iHome GlowTunes products, iP76 is capable of shifting its colors gradually from top to bottom, akin to a mood lamp, as well as strobing at your choice of nine speeds. A rear compartment holds an included remote control below video output ports, while a wall adapter and dock combination provide recharging power for iPhones and iPods. Thanks to Bluetooth 2.1 hardware, iP76 can also stream music from iPod touches, iPhones, and iPads, standing wherever you desire in a room.
We could very easily see this speaker becoming popular in art galleries and museums, as well as other venues where traditional Apple speaker systems just wouldn’t fit or look right. It is priced at 200 USDand we will update you with BOM cost at only 43.45USD as below.
