The AxiomAir is a new audio speaker, produced by Canadian loudspeaker maker Axiom Audio, that has a number of innovative features. This speaker is targeted towards people fed up of low-power, low-fidelity Bluetooth speakers and looking to make the switch to quality WiFi-streamed audio.

However the big differentiating factor with this speaker is its use of a fully functional Raspberry Pi computer. This allows for hackers, coders and makers to put their programming skills to the test and develop their own apps for the speaker system.

The AxiomAir speaker is currently the subject of a Kickstarter campaign, with a pledge of $475 getting you set up with one. This speaker is perfect for audiophiles with an itch for programming and a desire to get their hands dirty in code.
