Another new Kickstarter project is seeking support to release a new WiFi speaker product. The HUB by ekko audio can cast high-resolution audio to up to 10 speakers or headphones. The four receiver discs charge on the central slab and work at a range of 50 away from that core. Each one also has its own volume controls and 3.5mm headphone jack, so every person connected can manage their own audio experience.
The creators proposed several situations where this group approach to WiFi listening could be useful, such as watching movies with a group late at night. And with the range, it suggests that the discs could act as a cheaper alternative to home systems from Sonos and its pricy competitors.
