Bose Introduces the Soundlink Flex

Today, Bose welcomes a new addition to its iconic SoundLink Bluetooth speaker family: the SoundLink Flex. The Flex delivers the best audio performance for a portable speaker its size in an all-new, grabbable, and ultra-rugged design. It is packed with exclusive Bose technologies to deliver deep, clear sound that's powerful enough to fill your living room while entertaining, and loud enough for any outdoor adventure. It adds proprietary Bose PositionIQ technology to automatically detect the speaker's orientation, so whether upright, hanging, or flat on its back, the speaker is optimized to deliver rich, lifelike sound.

It combines with dual-opposing passive radiators, which brilliantly turn vibration into powerful audio output from the compact speaker. Bose proprietary digital signal processing (DSP) technology dramatically minimizes distortion so you hear natural, full sound.

Cougar Shows New Gaming Keyboard with Integrated Speakers

Probably the most oddball fusion of two components, Cougar unveiled a prototype gaming keyboard with integrated stereo speakers. The body design appears to be an evolution of the company's Attack X3, with a few polygonal cutouts along the side-walls. These speakers feature drivers found in notebooks, and take advantage of the hollow space inside the keyboard, and its metal base. The keyboard takes audio input from a standard 3.5 mm jack, while a USB connection drives the rest of it (probably including an amplifier for the speakers). There's also a downstream 3.5 mm jack to plug in your headphones, which probably mutes these tweeters integrated speakers, when your headphones are plugged in. How does it sound? Like your laptop. As a keyboard itself, you get a standard 104-key layout with RGB LED illumination, and special chrome keycaps over the WASD and arrow keys.
