Portable Bluetooth speakers are all the rage right now. However, even small Bluetooth speakers can be a little cumbersome to drag around. Enter the Mini-O. This little speaker is the brain child of the start-up company FLATo. The Mini-O is a smidge bigger than a credit card and can easily fit in your pocket, bag or purse making it the perfect speaker to take on a hiking or biking trip.

 

Traditional speakers use a cone and diaphragm to generate sound. However, the Mini-O uses patented flat magnetic speaker technology which enables the little tike to be one of the smallest, thinnest, and lightest Bluetooth speakers on the market.  The Mini-O features Bluetooth 4.2 which means you can stream music from nearly any Bluetooth compatible device.

Dual Mini-Os can be connected via Bluetooth letting you zap tunes to both speakers simultaneously creating stereo sound. Audio can also be played directly through the Mini-O via a USB cable. Each speaker is rated at 6 watts and according to FLAT0, the magnetic speaker tech inside the Mini-O means it sounds much larger than its meager dimensions would indicate. The speaker can play continuously for about 4-6 hours on a single charge.

 

FLATo is currently running a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to help fund production of the Mini-O. As with any Kickstarter there are inherent risks, however, initial shipments are expected to begin shipping December 2017. Anyone interested in being an early adopter of the Mini-O can find more information on their official Kickstarter Page.
