This British-designed innovation is about the size of a computer mouse and turns any hard surface into a speaker. Plug it into your music device, stick the sucker to a door, window or desk, hit play and prepare to be amazed when your surface of choice starts singing back at you. If you stick it to a window or door and then go outside the sound is equally as good on the other side. Its not going to burst your eardrums or throw out a dirty pumping bass but considering its diminutive size its certainly enough to keep you entertained if your on the move. Ideal for the nomad who likes to travel light Â– stick it to your hotel room mirror, window, wardrobe to enjoy your tunes.
Now for the science bit Â– the main component of the Soundbug is a tiny piece of a material called Terfenol-D, which was originally used by the US Navy for sonar work. The Terfenol is placed within an aluminium case and a coil wrapped round it. When electricity is passed through the coil the Terfenol expands slightly creating a massive force of 400 pounds Â– when its attached to a flat surface it transmits electronic signals into mechanical energy causing the flat surface to vibrate and broadcasts the sound.
If thatÂ’s not enough to whet your appetite its even got a cool energy saving feature which turns it off whenever the music stops so it wonÂ’t chew up your batteries.
