If you like to merge tech with nature, the Mini Wooden Speaker will be the portable sound system you’re craving.
I’ve always loved the look of wood when it comes to adding a rustic feel to the home or office and this little 2-inch cube of zebra wood and bamboo does a great job of adding that touch of country deco charm to any location it’s used at. I don’t know what it is, but the combo of wood and hi-tech gadgetry just looks appealing.
Getting in touch with your rustic sensibilities doesn’t mean sacrificing quality though, because housed within this wooden cube is a volume-boosting amplifier, powered by a rechargeable lithium battery. The audio cord slips into any standard headphone jack and the USB cable makes for easy recharging via your computer. You can also use a DC converter (not included) to handle charging duties during those times when a computer might not be available.
The Mini Wooden Speaker is available for $35 at Uncommon Goods.
