Rockit Logs Portable Speaker

One of our favorite things about how audio technology has progressed is that it has given us the ability to take our music with us just about anywhere. While we used to be relegated to hauling around unwieldy ghetto-blasters, we now have our pick of portable speakers that are stylish and effective. Some, however, stand out much more than others for their uniqueness and overall quality. And from the looks of it, these Rockit Logs appear as though they fall into that very category.

Invented by Jay DeMerit – a world class athlete who played on the U.S. national soccer team from 2007 to 2011 and studied Industrial Product Design at UIC – each of these speakers is made using reclaimed tone woods. After having been retrieved from abandoned logging sites, the unique bits of wood are fitted with a powerful high-quality 60-watt speaker, a Bluetooth receiver, a rechargeable battery that supplies up to 10 hours of playtime, and a USB charge port. At about 12-inches in diameter, these speakers are as portable as they are functional and stylish. When they hit the shelves, they will retail starting at $399, but you can contribute to their Kickstarter now and get one for much less. [Purchase]
