Pelty is literally the hottest thing to happen to speakers since, well, ever. We say “literally” because it runs purely on firepower provided by a lone candle burning from within. Its design is sleek and simple but eye-catching all the same. Pelty hooks up with your smartphone or music player via Bluetooth and uses absolutely no electricity to play your choice tunes.
Pelty has a built-in thermoelectric generator that converts the candle’s thermal energy into electricity. And in case you’re worried about the speaking catching fire, don’t be, because it’s made from a ceramic material (because its creators are smart enough to consider that angle, that’s for sure.)
Pelty is currently up for funding on Indiegogo, where a minimum pledge of $229 will get you one of your very own. It’s a steep price, but it’s well worth it once you hear the speaker’s crisp sound. The fact that it’s like getting a work of art that’s fully functional at the same time makes the deal even sweeter.
