Companies are continually looking for the ultimate in portability to suit our busy lives, and this latest little gadget, the Nimzy Vibro Blaster, could be mistaken for having a whole different role to play in our lives.
The size of a tub of Vaseline, it claims to turn any solid surface into a speaker – you just need to plug in your mp3 player or laptop to supply the music.
Despite claims of superior sound quality compared to many portable speakers, this is a case of seeing is believing. Until we’ve had the Vibro Blaster in and tried it for ourselves, we seriously doubt the sound quality – but are prepared to be proven wrong.
Weight wise, its heavier than some of the portable speakers we’ve seen, and at £60, more expensive too.
