Aether Cone, a wireless speaker that connects to your home wireless network to stream music and other audio, was presented at the Code conference in Rancho Palos Verdes. Designed to fit into your hands, this extremely chic minimalist wireless speaker looks a bit like a modern megaphone. It is priced at just $399 and available in black and copper, or white and silver.
The Aether Cone works like a smart music player, learning what music you like and when you like to listen it. For example, if you like to listen to rock music in the morning, or classic music in the evening, the Aether Cone will know it and make it happen. It is able to play music, podcasts and Internet radio via a variety of different services, operated easily by turning the dial or through voice command.
The newest range has been outfitted with multi-room syncing capabilities, which allows you to buy 10 of these speakers and spread them throughout your entire house.
Even more interesting feature of this speaker is that it not only learns what you like, but which room you listen to it in. So, even if you buy just one Cone and move it from room to room, Aether says it is able to learn your preferences for each living zone.
Boasting an eight-hour battery life, the Bluetooth-enabled player also features voice feedback and is able to answer your questions. So, if you want to know which song you are listening to, just ask the Cone. It can answer, but it can also repeat your requests to make sure it is hearing you correctly.
