Give Your Old Speakers a New Lease of Life With Rocki
Have some old speakers lying around the house? The Kickstarter project, Rocki, will give your old speakers a new lease of life by turning them into wireless speakers.
By plugging in the Rocki Play module into your existing sound system or old speakers via the 3.5mm or RCA connectors, your speakers will be turned into wireless speakers. The free Rocki app will then allow you to stream music to your Rocki Play module via Wi-Fi (802.11b/g/n), which covers a longer range when compared to Bluetooth. The company has already started work on the Android app, while the development of the iOS and HTML 5 (so the app can run on Windows phone, PC and MAC) versions has just begun.
The project is aiming to ship out its first shipment Rocki units by Christmas 2013 (if it meets its funding goals), so if you like what you see, head over to its Kickstarter page.
