When you think of speakers, do you picture large, cumbersome devices? What if there was a speaker that was not only portable but also a complete sound system? Meet Tiptop, a revolutionary speaker that redefines what a portable sound system can be.
Created by three Stanford University students, the Tiptop speaker serves as both a portable speaker and an integrated sound system. It’s designed to be user-friendly and versatile.
This innovative speaker is Bluetooth-enabled, allowing seamless connectivity with any Bluetooth-compatible device. Right out of the box, Tiptop is ready to go – no wires, no buttons, just pure convenience. You can control the volume directly from your device.
The design of Tiptop is space-efficient, making it perfect for modern living spaces. Unlike traditional speakers that sit on tables or floors, Tiptop is designed to optimize unused spaceÃ¢ÂÂspecifically, the corners of your walls. Simply mount it using its magnetic system.
The mount comes with built-in magnets, allowing you to easily attach the Tiptop speaker. The magnetic mount also serves a dual purposeÃ¢ÂÂyou can hang your keys on it when you take your Tiptop out for portable use.
Equipped with Bluetooth 3.0 and a 30-foot range, Tiptop offers flexibility and freedom. Its rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides up to 10 hours of playback on a single charge. Charging is simple, too, thanks to its micro USB port, which also allows for firmware updates.
The Tiptop project is currently seeking $215,000 in funding on Kickstarter. You can own a Tiptop speaker by pledging $175 on Kickstarter. Initially, Tiptop was only available for shipping within the US. However, international shipping is now available for a $199 pledge, as part of a special early-bird offer. The estimated delivery date is January 2014.
