This speaker seen on Chinavasion, which proudly bears the name i-Mo, is lauded for many of its qualities, as you will see for yourselves on the website
, where it is also dubbed as the i-Mo Resonance Speaker + Radio + MP3 Player. I say, forget all that, as one of the main features this audio device has is its digital cow face.
Gadgets resembling cows have been put aside until now and haven't gotten the attention they really deserved, but that's all about to change with this new resonance speaker
made in China. The other
main characteristic of this speaker is that it vibrates, turning any (flat) surface it is placed on into a trembling heaven. They even say it has a 12W output power and will be compatible with any device that has a 3.5 mm audio output.
Now, if you don't to use the i-Mo with other audio systems, the thing can sing by itself, thanks to an integrated MP3 player and 2 GB of internal memory. It comes with a rather small 1,200 mAh rechargeable battery, but it can also be charged via USB and this means that if you keep it connected to a computer, you'll not have any discharging problems. The i-Mo is also an FM radio player.
I like the fact that the volume is controlled in a truly natural way, namely by wiggling the plastic horns of the digital cow and that it also comes with its own power adapter and travel adapter. Frankly speaking, I wouldn't expect it to sound very good, or to vibrate too much. In fact, I don't even know what the purpose of building such a small resonance speaker is. Its dimensions
are just 95 x 65 x 83 mm. As for pricing, the $45 tag is a little too much for a herbivore, if you ask me.
