Meet the Latest From Libratone: the ONE Click and TOO Bluetooth Portable Speakers

Libratone ONE Click greeen skateboardScandinavian design, exceptional acoustic fidelity and, most importantly, versatility are what set apart the Libratone ONE Click, the just-launched answer to the adaptable needs of the ever-moving music lover. This portable and stylish Bluetooth speaker delivers great sound anywhere as it’s uniquely designed for life on the go.

The most adaptable speaker around works with most any location or situation, as its adjustable short handle and U-shaped lock allows it to be hung from a bedpost, a tree branch or chain-link fence. With a click or two, users can change the way it is hung, carried or worn, never having to worry about finding a flat, level surface for setting it up, and making it the perfect accessory for a hike, a trip to the beach – it is splash proof – or an impromptu indoor soiree.

Just as adaptable is the Libratone TOO, the playful, portable speaker that packs surprising sound into a compact, convenient, grab-and-go package. Shaped like an overstuffed hot dog, the handy dimensions of the TOO (8.3 x 2.6 x 2.3 inches) means it easily fits into a bag or back pocket.

Libratone will be offering demos of the ONE Click, which just launched on June 15, and the TOO, which will launch on July 1, at booth #230 in the Altman Building at ShowStoppers CE Week on Wednesday June 22nd and Thursday June 23rd.

Halē Orb Debuts New Connected Photo Experience at CE Week 2016

By: Ken Miura, CEO, DouZen

Halē means “home” in Hawaiian

In the Internet of Things movement, no one has done a masterful job making photos habitually accessible and viewable via a connected smart device – even more so for videos.

Viewing photos on a phone is nice – but making memories a part of your home is a whole other experience. In the absence of physical togetherness, my parents love to see photos and videos of their kids and grandkids. They are not afraid of technology but they want it to be simple.

This was our inspiration at Douzen behind Halē Orb – a new photo experience that makes it fun and easy for everyone in the family to upload, share and view a curated collection of personal photos and videos on a large screen.

Think of Halē Orb as a remote control for your personal content. With its sleek spherical design, elegant user interface and simple controls, Halē Orb features a single push button and scrolling wheel that rotates to browse through unlimited photos and videos.  Family members simply share images using the popular apps they already use – like Facebook, Instagram, Dropbox or Email – and everyone in the group can enjoy them.

The connection is made via the Halē Stick, the brains of the product, which plugs into the HDMI port on a TV. It serves as a computer and constant Internet connection for Halē Orb to display the images.

Limitless Audio: Music Makes Everything Better With Custom DIY Earphones from Decibullz

Are your earbuds constantly falling out? If so, you’re not alone. An Internet search for “earphones falling out” yields millions of results, and you only need to walk into a gym to see people struggling to find a comfortable, stable position for their earbuds. Even the tiny movements in your face and jaw caused by simply breathing or shifting position is enough to displace standard earphones. Is it any wonder they’re so quick to fall out once you start bouncing around and exercising?

Fortunately, there’s now an easy, affordable, and comfortable solution! After their successful Kickstarter launch, Decibullz is introducing their newest do-it-yourself custom-molded wireless earphones with AptX® technology for high-quality streaming, ensuring quality sound and a secure fit to free you up to reap all the benefits music can provide for your body and brain.

Decibullz Custom Molded Earphones and Custom Molded Earbuds are designed specifically to keep up with you no matter what you’re doing. Decibullz’s CEO and founder, Olympic-level gymnastics coach Kyle Kirkpatrick, was inspired to create the line of custom-fit products so he could bounce on a trampoline and still listen to his favorite music. With that firsthand experience of how traditional earphones are so inadequate, Kirkpatrick made sure to design a product that could solve the problem not just for him, but for users around the world. “Allowing people to do what they love while listening to what they love is why Decibullz exists,” he explains.
