Connected audio equipment for the home is gaining more popularity amongst consumers who are becoming more comfortable with smart home solutions, which is seeing new options like the 'Wave' smart speaker come about.

The speaker features a conical design that offers 360-degree audio, while the integrated Clove AI platform will offer users access to all their favorite services using only their voice to prompt them. Outfitted with a 5,000mAh battery, the speaker features six touch-sensitive buttons on the top of the unit to keep a minimal aesthetic and encourage users to speak to the device rather than physically interact with it.

The 'Wave' smart speaker is the design work of Seungwoo Kim and Naver Labs for Line Japan, and identifies an increased shift towards small smart home solutions to make the transition to a fully connected life less daunting for users.
