This new age of technology has brought us many wondrous (and sometimes useless) devices like LED eyelashes, intricate PC case mods, and the Nokia 3310. But, fun and interesting tech need not be complicated.¬†Sometimes, it’s the marriage of two great functions that give the most fun in tech.

See the Divoom Timebox Mini, for example.

This unassuming box is a useful clock

But it’s also a fully functioning Bluetooth speaker

The rear houses speaker grilles and a micro-USB port for charging.

But, this box can do more things…

LED isn’t limited to displaying time

All you need to do is download the Divoom Timebox app, connect the speakers via Bluetooth to your phone, and you’re all set. The 11 x 11 LED grid allows for fun designs.

There are pre-set patterns on the app which provide a lot of variety.

Okay, I’m not so good at this

Creating your own LED art is a great idea — if you can actually come up with decent designs. It’s not as easy as one would think, but it’s definitely a lot of fun.

Play custom animations, too

A simple tap on the Timebox app allows you to loop LED animations, all of which are fully customizable, too.

You can set up the Divoom Timebox Mini to enable LED notifications from your phone. Alarm functions are available, and you can even send pixel art to friends who have the same speaker; just think of all the possibilities!

Who would’ve thought an LED speaker would be this fun? The Divoom Timebox Mini retails for US$ 50.
