In a world of making one thing do multiple things, the Yamaha Relit LSX-70 is a desktop lamp and bluetooth speaker.
What’s inside? 24cm-tall, 1kg cylindrical enclosure, containing a rechargeable battery, a Bluetooth receiver, two speakers and four adjustable LED lights.
Being bluetooth connected, the LED can also be controlled through the iOS and Android app, allowing you to up or dim the brightness, and have the lamp come on at a set time.
Bluetooth 2.1, aptX compatibility and two speakers (a tweeter and a woofer) allows you to get good overall sound quality from the lamp.
The LSX-70 manages 8 hours of battery life when playing music with the light off.
Considering buying one? You have a choice of black, champagne gold, and bronze. For the “luxury” price off £460 and will go on sale this winter.
Although not very informative, here’s Yamaha’s promo video for the product.

A Google event hosted in New York ‘Dev Art’ last month, saw developer Zack Lieberman’s world connect piano.
Zack’s passion behind radio, and the ability to be able to tune into a number of stations around the world at any time, lead to the build of this keyboard.
On pressing a single note, the computer will search all stations within a certain region for similar sounding frequencies being broadcasted live. Depending on where the region is, it will play through one of many speakers.
As he states in the video below, although the note can be distinguished, you will never get a particularly musical sound, but more “chaos”. There is a threshold to adjust how musical these sounds are, but he has set this low to hear voices and other odd sounds.
Joining the likes of SMS Audio and Intel, Jabra will be releasing its own heart monitoring earbuds, but unlike competition, without the wires.
The earbuds will talk wirelessly via bluetooth to a specialised Smart Life app on your phone. IP55 waterproofing, the earbuds should run for 5-6 hours on a single charge, with heart monitoring continuing after battery depletes. The app will include a bunch of workout features, giving you heart rate zone goals and allowing you to determine your VO2 Max level which Jabra claims is 98% accurate compared to proper specialised medical gear.
The earbuds will release on 1 October in the US for $199 and can be pre-ordered here, with a load of buds and ear wings to ensure a quality fit for your ears.
