From Glass Auto Stereos to Moldable Music

 - Jul 11, 2012
These innovative sound-blasting products will give you a glimpse into what is available on the market today in terms of music-related devices. With the growing obsession of iPods, and the use of smartphones as a key source for music storing and playing, people are looking for compact ways to enjoy their music, anywhere they go.

Although high end surround sound is still favorable, there is a growing trend in petite sized audio players. Ordinary speakers just won’t cut it anymore, as people seek odd and adorable shaped devices; whether you desire high-heeled speakers or ones that are doughnut-shaped, the market has you covered.

Digital sound is also translating into non-related products such as musical lighting fixtures, music-making computer mice and glass audio. For example, the AccoustiVision Car Windows by Magna International is a technology being developed, which would turn glass surfaces into loudspeakers, replacing the need for a built-in system.
