Bowers & Wilkins Pools its Expertise into the Formation Suite

Published

on

Bowers & Wilkins has spent over 50 years building a reputation for creating and innovating audio products. Their new Formation Suite takes wireless audio for whole-home sound a step beyond that solid foundation. “The Formation Suite is the newest and most technologically innovative line of wireless products our development team has ever created,” explains Bowers & Wilkins CEO Greg Lee.

“We are setting a new bar in the world of wireless sound, proving that wired fidelity can be achieved wirelessly. The all-new Formation Wireless technology enables a fidelity never experienced on a wireless system before.”

The Formation Suite consists of five products, the Bar, Duo, Wedge, Bass, and Audio. These products use a patented mesh network for a higher quality streaming experience with better speaker synchronization. That synchronisation allows the speakers to function within one microsecond of each other, creating a more harmonious experience as you move room to room in your home. The speakers also have a 96/24 bit audio resolution—twice the fidelity of any other leading wireless speaker—for a more robust sound.

Lee further comments that “With Formation, we’re taking the superior quality sound of Bowers & Wilkins is known for and coupling it with an unmatched, easy-to-use, wireless listening experience, making it the new standard in whole home audio.”

Audio Porn is a Real Thing

Published

What is the biggest complaint that porn viewers have about their experience? Unrealistic dialogue? Difficult-to-replicate positions? The strange prevalence of videos predicated on the belief that stepfamilies are the hottest thing in the world?

Or is it that perennial beef: that porn videos are just too visual and all the stuff you can see is distracting you from the real show: the audio?

Well, a couple of enterprising pornsters have gotten together to address this pressing problem. OK, they don’t put it quite like that, but Dick Twitch and Venus Flytrap – we have no information on whether these are their real names – did object to the neglect of aural titillation in most porn productions. Their response: to create a new porn project dedicated entirely to the stimulation of the ears – via sound, that is. Not by, like, tickling them or anything.

Fuck Me In The Ear offers “titillating, immersive audio experiences” for anyone whose turn-ons go beyond the purely visual. And let’s face it: some sexy audio can be just as exciting as video, when done right. We all know that porn with the sound turned down loses a certain je ne sais quoi – Dick and Venus’s site will answer the question as to whether the same is true of porn with the vision turned down.

There seems no doubt that audio porn can be a success – if not, why would phone sex be a thing?

Man Hacks Roomba’s Speakers to Swear Upon Impact

Published

Who can blame Roomba? Don’t you do the same thing? If you bump into something or stub your toe, don’t you swear just a bit, even if it’s only under your breath?

Now the beloved robotic housekeeper Roomba does the same thing. YouTube star Michael Reeves customised his Roomba to swear when it runs into things.

This Roomba Swears when it bumps into shit

Reeves put the project together in response to the requests and posts of fans. The build is pretty simple, consisting of a Raspberry Pi, a radio receiver, a Bluetooth speaker, and a few additional new sensors. When the sensors detect a collision, the Raspberry Pi plays audio recordings of other YouTube sensations. The video chronicles the testing of the robot, and people’s reactions to the outbursts. They even take the robot to a local Target to get even more “marketing research.” (The store manager didn’t really appreciate it much.)

If you can handle all the language, the video is pretty entertaining. Of course, this may not be the next hot project, but at least the robot is a little more human now?

Bose Puts Big Sound in a Small Home Speaker 300

Just like dynamite comes in small packages, the new Bose Home Speaker 300 is diminutive as well. And just like dynamite, this speaker will blow your socks off.

The Bose Home Speaker 300 measures just six inches tall, making it perfect for preserving space in your home. Despite its size, it still delivers “room-rocking bass and 360 degree lifelike sound.” It also comes with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa built-in voice assistance so that you can access your music completely hands-free. Using the Bose Music app, you can choose between either Alexa, which the speaker supports out of the box, or Assistant.

Alternatively, you can use the controls on the top of the speaker to control playback and volume if voice assistants aren’t your thing. And since the Home Speaker 300 is a part of the Bose family of smart speakers and sound bars, it can link up with other smart speakers for multi-room sound, like the recently released Bose Home Speaker 500 or the 700 sound bar.

Finally, the speaker also supports AirPlay 2.

The Bose Home Speaker 300 will be available in stores starting June 20 and will be priced at AUD$259.95.
