the world’s first cloud speaker – OD-11 by teenage engineering
originally developed in 1974 as the ‘carlsson OD-11′ by swedish engineer stig carlsson, the loudspeaker was designed
for real living rooms, as opposed to the common practice of developing speakers in perfectly damped rooms. oddly,
that contradiction is the same today.
presented at the 2013 CES in las vegas, stockholm-based studio teenage engineering have re-introduced the former
speaker as the ‘OD-11′ by implementing a feature that references the recurring theme of ‘the internet of things’ –
fully integrated cloud connectivity. equipped with an articulated amplifier that delivers 100W, a subwoofer and tweeter,
wi-fi capabilities and a sound processor, the device delivers both great sound and user experience.
the system is controlled through the magnetic ‘ortho volume remote’ with wireless communication built around a
bluetooth 4.0 low energy chip, allowing it to run for years on a single button cell battery.
