'iothinks' Makes Speakers Smart Enough to Stream Music and More

The 'iothinks' system is the speaker module of the future. This music-playing device works with a variety of gadgets and home speakers while also providing a great deal of other services.

Currently posted on Kickstarter, the 'iothinks' device works with the user's existing audio system and lets them stream music from top streaming services while also reading news and notifications. This speaker module is a hands-free device and works ingeniously to learn the user's habits so it can operate automatically. Taking a more helpful approach to sound, 'iothinks' can perform such tasks as playing a lullaby upon hearing a baby cry or reading the user's most recent emails first thing in the morning.

Upon hitting their stretch goal, the makers of this device will work towards adding voice control capabilities much like Amazon's Echo.
