GiiNii has come up with a unique solution to the overtly complex world of wireless sound systems. Their AudioBulb sound system can be set up in minutes. “AudioBulb requires no technical set-up, wires or custom installation.” – GiiNii. The AudioBulb is a simple concept, a light bulb that also acts as a speaker. All you need to do is screw these fixtures into any ordinary light socket, and then from a docking station you will be streaming music wirelessly in no time.
A Simple Wireless Music System
Music: This hassle free sound system can be used with iPods, iPhones and normal auxiliary input sources (so it can be used with other MP3 devices, laptops, home stereos, or even with TVs to create a wireless home theater sound system).
Light: The AudioBulb is an LED light bulb. Using only 5 watts of energy and rated to last up to 10 years, it is highly efficient. It matches the light output of a normal 60 watt incandescent light bulb.
Freedom in Speaker Design
A great thing about this unique concept is that the speakers are hidden around the room, whether they are in the ceiling or behind a lamp shade. They also won’t take up any extra space in a room. Because they can be used in an ordinary lamp socket, this allows you to create your own sound system based around any lamp design – from Ikea lamps to more high end ones.
Whole Home Sound System
With the AudioBulb you can set up a wide spread, wireless home sound system. You can use up to 8 AudioBulbs with one docking station. They can be placed all around the house, as far as 50-100 feet from the docking station. This allows for an easy way of adding speakers to an outdoor space if you already have light outlets outdoors.
The AudioBulb package comes with a docking station and a remote control. From these controls you can create two different zones – adjusting the lighting and music in two different areas of the house. There are also 4 light brightness settings that you have control over.
Price: 2 AudioBulbs and the docking station come as a package and is priced at $299.99. Additional AudioBulbs can be bought for $99 each. Available here from Amazon.
