K-box Makes Anything Into A Speaker With Special Goo

kbox

By Evan Ackerman

Short on speakers? How about you try a K-box, a speaker that turns anything you stick it to into a better speaker using some kind of “patented ‘gel-audio’ technology.” Things like this have been around for a little while, but the K-box is supposed to put out clean, powerful bass (that is “guaranteed to deafen your neighbours”) all the way down to 40 hz, something that other stick-on speakers are notoriously lousy at. It’s about the size of an iPhone and comes with a 20 hour battery that recharges via USB.

Although you can supposedly buy this right now, there’s only one picture, and it’s very render-y… There are also no specs on what the audio output power actually is, or even what inputs it accepts. So, I’d maybe hold off on this until someone actually gets a pic of a real one or something. It sells for about $60 from Kerchoonz.com

    I think this may be a review from someone who hasn't seen this thing. I saw a demonstration and it doens't have anything 'sticky' on it. In fact, the bottom of it is rubbery, the gel is part of it's 'insides' and you don't put it on a speaker, they demstrated it on a table. The kbox overtook the table's surface to turn it into a speaker it was a wee bit thicker than an iphone but, the same length and a wee bit narrower (the demonstration was with an iphone). I was slightly impressed which never happens with me because I like my gadgets.
