Combining the playful form of a teddy bear with the capabilities of a smart music player is a toy speaker called SpotiBear. The charming toy has a hard shell that was constructed with 3D printing, housing technological components that help this toy play music for kids through Spotify, as well as sing lullabies and tell stories to soothe young ones to sleep. What gives the toy its low-cost source of power is Raspberry Pi.

SpotiBear was created by Reddit user Andreas Lindahl as a one-off project, developed mainly as an exploration of 3D modeling and printing. The design process for bringing SpotiBear's design to life included sketches on paper, which were digitized in Adobe Illustrator before being brought into Strata 3D. Although there is definitely a market for SpotiBear, it's amazing to know that this speaker is something that you can potentially create on your own.
