CREATE An exploratory project focused on finding a niche within the growing Bluetooth speaker market SPKR aimed to create a communal listening experience for an active outdoor lifestyle. Many ideas and concepts were generated varying scale and application, tapping into different lifestyle markets. A niche was discovered for creating a rugged element proof speaker for outdoor parties and events with a rugged styling harking to brands such as Red Bull, Nike, Adidas, Puma, Nixon, and Range Rover. The product is functionally ready for rugged outdoor adventures, getting wet, falling in sand, and bumping rocks but styled elegantly enough to be shown off in any urban apartment.
SOLVE SPKR is the essential outdoor party speaker. Portability is easy with the large rubberized handle and rubber padding surround protecting the device from any drops. Water proof speakers and sealed phone pocket keep you partying in the rain or rising tide. Skipping or replaying songs is easy through the gorilla glass allowing full access to the smart phone interface. A hidden dry compartment stores keys, loose change or anything else a party might need. The lithium battery blasts music through the large amps and drivers for hours. Standard jacks on the back connect any non-Bluetooth products or even let you put head phones in.
