Chinese startup, crazybaby will soon launch a Kickstarter campaign for a connected home wireless speaker. The futuristic, softball-like portable speaker called Luna can sense your presence and will activate the moment you enter a room. It also impresses by utilizing MESHNET network technology, with multi-point connectivity, and app-based controls that can support up to 32 zones, similar to Sonos.
Crazybaby says their Luna portable speaker delivers incredible, full-bodied sound with an independent high frequency horn and a full-range speaker. The centerpiece of the design is the Luna Eye, a groundbreaking design that uses an auto-wake up smart electric telescopic system and adjustable color kit that lets you set the lighting to match the user’s listening experience.
Crafted with aircraft grade-aluminum and shaped in a perfect palm-sized sphere, Luna claims to offer phenomenal sound from a 2-inch full-range NdFeB speaker, which boasts less distortion and a more linear magnetic path. Thanks to the independent high frequency horn, Luna is said to be balanced and smooth in all frequency ranges which makes the music both naturally pleasant and distinctly more layered.
“What makes Luna revolutionary is that it combines wireless portability with support for multiple units,” said crazybaby Founder and Lead Designer Allen Zhang. “With the crazybaby+ App, Luna’s excellent multi-room support allows the average user to build an audio network and control station that is customized to their needs, without the use of wires or the need for special installation.”
