Electronics users have gotten well used to buttons and knobs, and more recently the variable touchscreen interface. With so many products that have lost touch with the virtue of simplicity, the Hidden Radio & Bluetooth Speaker is a godsend for people of any level of technological know-how.

The clever sound system takes the form of a small cylinder with a pullup cover. When the cap is pushed all of the way down the device remains off, but a subtle turn and upward tug unveils the music-emitting perforations. If you keep twisting the top higher, more of the speaker is uncovered and the volume increases.

Designed by John Van Den Nieuwenhuizen and Vitor Santa Maria, the Hidden Radio & Bluetooth Speaker can effortlessly connect to your smartphone and laptop, allowing you to interchangeably use different units in separate rooms.
