There are enough boxy-looking audio amplifiers on the market that this penguin speaker really stands out. Designed by Jerome Olivet, the Pulssy Maxxi emits great depth of sound from quite a small device with an intriguing abstract form.
The body of the portable sound system is near-cylindrical, yet it embodies gentle curves and a narrowed curling top. Whether or not a flightless seabird inspired the appearance, the 360-degree speaker does resemble one with its chin tucked in.
Targeted primarily at teenage boys, this gadget was made to be carried in a backpack. Furthermore, the penguin speaker boasts the quality of being "life resistant"––which is a particularly important feature for users who are active and perhaps not terribly cautious. The Pulssy Maxxi can bring music to skateboard parks and urban hangouts without much risk of being damaged.
