Sony’s new speaker can literally hold your beer

Perfect for outdoor parties!

Published

You don’t need much to host a kicking party these days. Today, house parties are defined by two things — a smartphone and a free Spotify account. External speakers have turned into completely optional tools. Even then, speakers are now sleeker and sexier. The days of huge boomboxes are over.

Of course, outdoor parties are a completely different story. Sometimes, flagship smartphones aren’t even enough to power an entirely open field. To get the outdoor party going, you’d need something meatier. Smartphones have made huge speakers obsolete in an indoor setting; however, the huge boombox finds a new home out in the open.

At CES 2019, Sony revolutionizes the audio industry once again. The company’s new speaker will bring the boom to your outdoor party.

The new GTK-PG10 sports a specialized digital signal processor. The speaker’s processor optimizes audio output for outdoor scenarios.

The cube-shaped speaker also switches between two form factor configurations. The top panel unfolds into a usable surface with four cup holders. With such a unique feature, the speaker’s top portion is splash-proof, building a modicum of resistance for woozy beer drinkers. Also, the unfolded configuration angles the speakers upward, blasting sound across a wider area.

As for input and output, the speaker can connect through Bluetooth, USB, microphone, and AUX. It also carries a traditional FM radio.

Sony’s new speaker is a fresh take on the outdoor music scene. At the very least, it’s a strange new direction for the brand. Fresh off traditional TV and smartphone launches, Sony has created a speaker that can literally hold your beer.

Global Sources: Sustainable Cases

Published

At a show like Global Sources iPhone cases are a dime a dozen, but what caught our attention are companies with a commitment to sustainability.

Shenzhen Bobotel Technology

Take Shenzhen Bobotel Technology for example, who makes eco-friendly cases made of wheat straw — a biodegradable alternative to traditional plastic.

They can make cases for your iPhone, Samsung, or Huawei phones, in any color you desire. Each case starts at 90 cents at a minimum order of 50 units.

C&V Global

Guangzhou-based C&V Global offers similar products, too. The company has been certified by the Global Recycled Standard.

They have iPhone cases made from recycled plastic waste. In its purest form, it looks like a simple, clear jelly case but it can come in a variety of colors in both matte and glossy finishes.

They also make biodegradable cases made of wheat straw or bamboo fiber and thermoplastics. These cases can be engraved with your favorite pro-environment slogans as well.

The product decomposes naturally after two years if you decide to discard them. You can buy the cases through CTunes.
