Vibrating cube brings music to your ears

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Despite sounding like a raunchy Ann Summers product, the Nimzy Vibro Max is actually the successor to a gadget designed to turn any flat surface into your very own Wembley Arena.

The Vibro Max builds on the success of the Nimzy Vibro Blaster, a small camera lens shaped device, which uses patented electro-acoustic technology to transform sonic signals into mechanical vibrations. It only produces up to 20W of sound though, so Wembley Studio may be some way off yet.

The Max though offers true 360° sound and includes a remote control for adjusting bass, treble and volume from the comfort of your seat. Its piano black surfaces and sleek looks mean it will also sit neatly on, well, whatever surface you eventually put it on.

It is also designed to be portable - weighing 550g - and so connects up to your laptop, PC, MP3 or CD player, then only requiring you to find a flat surface.

The Nimzy Vibro Max is available now and retails for around £70 (€104/$139).
