Spray painting, urban art and tagging. Those are all things that simply can’t be accomplished without the inspiration of music. And if you tossed this all in a shaker, shook it up, we think the cocktail would look pretty much like Ecko UNLTD.SOUND’s Spray Bluetooth speaker.
Yup, housed behind the can’s black metal grill are a pair of 40mm, 3 watt drivers. To put it in perspective most over the ear headcans use 40mm drives, so don’t expect this things to make your backpack explode with sound. However, it is powered by a rechargeable and swappable lithium-ion battery, which should provide about 10 hours of playback on a single charge.
To add to the novelty factor, and rightfully so, Ecko has done away with the standard audio controls. Instead, the spray nozzle serves as a play/pause button, while the can’s dome rotates, allowing to increase volume as well as skip tracks. But don’t stop there. There is also a hidden mic, allowing you to take calls while you douse your high school in your favorite shade of fuchsia.
As of now they haven’t made mention of pricing or a launch date, but expect to see it on display at this year’s CES.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
