Early DigiSpeaker Concepts

Below are a few pictures of early DigiSpeaker concepts and experiments.  Mostly we were interested in product form factors and technology experimentations.  We knew that we wanted to make a bookshelf speaker with good sound and a forward facing camera.  The idea was that the unit would be placed on a bookshelf in a room so it had a good vantage point for scanning the entire room.  We experimented with various camera sensors and lens.  We also experimented with various amplifiers and speaker arrangements hoping to get good stereo imaging and high quality sound from a single unit.  Click through the gallery to get a sense of some of the work.
