P.A.C.O Gesture Control Speaker by Digital Habit(s)
P.A.C.O. is a digital loudspeaker, offering wireless streaming via Bluetooth, so music from different sources (Smartphone, PC, MP3 player) can be played.
The 26 x 19 x 14 cm (10.2 x 7.5 x 5.5 in), 5 kg (11 lb) PACO concrete speaker features two 6 W amps, a front-firing 3.5-inch low/mid range speaker, and a 2-inch surface transducer mounted underneath the fir top that’s said to add warmth to the highs, while the concrete housing enhances bass performance. The unit’s reported frequency response is 85 Hz to 20 kHz.
There’s no audio input jack, music is streamed to the speaker wirelessly over Bluetooth from a smartphone or media player, but there is a line-out port for physical connection to active speakers. The harmonic board top is home to a pair of IR sensors for playback and volume control using gestures. A user holding a hand over both sensors starts or pauses playback, for example, or sliding left to right skips a track forward.
Music can be controlled by gestural interface.
