Speakers are typically only good for emitting sounds, but the Lyric Speaker from SIX Inc. pairs audio experiences with visual elements for an enhanced entertainment experience.
While this speaker does serve to display a song's lyrics on its transparent LED screen, there's more to it than that. The smart IoT speaker system is also able to pick up on the feel of the song in order to create graphics that suit a particular style of music. For instance, a soothing track will be visualized in a completely different way than an uplifting, energetic beat.
In addition to where it diverges from traditional speakers, the Lyric Speaker has the potential to become the showpiece of a home's entertainment system, rather than something to be tucked away. In June, the SIX Inc. speaker will become available for pre-order.
