Today, few people are surprised by a wireless speaker. They are sold in myriad quantities in every electronics store, in every radio market. So in most cases they are chosen with their “eyes”: if there is no difference in price, and the sound cannot be appreciated without unpacking, you will most likely buy the one that looks better.

And by this criterion, Sound Heroes, which recently appeared on Indiegogo, simply does not have any competitors. This is by far the most futuristic wireless speaker on the market. According to the description of the project on the page of the crowdfunding site, the developers sought to create a Bluetooth speaker that would "stand out from the crowd." The team coped with this goal - Sound Heroes can be called unusual in a number of parameters.

The design of the device is fundamentally different from what portable audio equipment usually looks like. The speaker case is a polygonal model of a person standing on a platform, somewhat reminiscent of a futuristic glider from science fiction films. The whole design seemed to come off a poster of some video game. However, the developers of such comparisons are not at all shy.

Another feature of Sound Heroes is a real smoke machine built into the body. Together with the backlight, it enhances the speaker's futuristic look. More precisely, this machine works on steam - you just need to pour water into a special container. So there will be no unpleasant smell in the room. You can choose the color of the lighting through the smartphone app, and there is plenty to roam around with up to 16 million shades to choose from.

In addition to all of the above, the column is good in that it can charge smartphones and other mobile devices. There are both wired and wireless charging - in the latter case, you just need to place the phone on the surface of Sound Heroes. Another interesting feature of Kalium Labs development is the Wi-Fi signal booster. The speaker can connect to a wireless network and transform into an additional router, increasing the coverage radius.

How all this will sound is impossible to judge by the description, unfortunately. But the creators traditionally claim that the speaker is in complete order with the acoustics. True, there is only one tweeter (high-frequency speaker) and one subwoofer, so it is unlikely that the device will be able to compete with any DALI Katch or Bang & Olufsen speakers in terms of sound parameters. But the problem with loudness is definitely solvable: up to 12 Sound Heroes can be combined into one audio system.

The column is available in 11 colors: from black-green to yellow and black-pink. The cost of one Sound Heroes is $ 120, which is relatively inexpensive given the feature set and unusual design. Kalium Labs will ship to customers in October 2017.>
