The HiddenRadio Bluetooth Speaker is the latest project to be setting Kickstarter on fire, and it’s no wonder why. Just look at it! It’s like Jony Ive designed a speaker in his spare time, and decided to throw it up on Kickstarter just for the hell of it.
Designed by John VDN and Vitor Santa Maria, the HiddenRadio is a Bluetooth radio + speaker combo that is simplicity itself to operate: just pull the cap up to turn the speaker on, push it down to turn it off. Want to raise or lower the volume? No problem, a twist of the same cap will make things louder or quieter, depending on the way you turn it. And if you don’t have an iPhone or Bluetooth-enabled iPod, you can either use the line-in jack or just settle for the built-in (and titular) AM/FM radio.
This is gorgeously minimalistic, and unlike most Kickstarter projects, it’s already made more than enough money to hit the market. Still, if you want to guarantee yourself a HiddenRadio as soon as they hit they market, one can be yours by pledging just $119 over at the official Kickstarter page.Related
