Kickstarter success story Zooka launches in the UK
PORTLAND, Ore, 13th November 2012: Carbon Audio, the design-driven audio products company, is delighted to announce that the most talked about wireless speaker of 2012 has landed in the UK - and it’s about to change your audio world.
The Zooka Wireless Speaker rose to fame back in February when its Kickstarter campaign exceeded the backing target of $25,000 - hitting a total of $70,540 with 678 backers. The Zooka has since gone into production and has already gained a celebrity following, including a recommendation on Janet Jackson’s blog.
Carbon Audio collaborated with Wieden + Kennedy’s experimental school, W+K 12, to help launch the Zooka and redefine the spectrum of loud.
How it works
The Zooka Wireless Speaker, which packs a powerful, high quality audio experience into a sleek and sexy form, is a slimline silicone Bluetooth speaker that slides onto the top of your gadget, whether it be a laptop or tablet, and gives you HD Audio Sound with A2DP Streaming.
The brilliantly designed Zooka easily connects with Bluetooth-enabled devices and transforms Apple and Android products into a big sound audio system that allows anyone to play games, listen to music, and watch movies five times louder. The 3.5mm input jack makes it suitable for non-Bluetooth devices too, making it the ultimate audio gadget. Just slide the Zooka onto the edge of your device, pair it, and enjoy full, rich sound that lights up a room from as much as 30 feet away.
Thanks to the slimline design of the Zooka, it’s ultra-portable, lightweight and stylish. The sound can be increased or decreased easily using the control buttons on the top, so you can enjoy your audio at the perfect volume with the click of a button.
The Zooka also has a built in microphone so you can pair it with your phone for hands-free conversations at home or on the go. Everything has been thought of - even a space for the webcam has been included as well as a hidden but easily accessible stand that converts the Zooka into an all-in-one audio system/stand for mobile devices.
For those that want their audio gadgets to look as good as they sound, the range of eight different colours, from cool grey to neon green, will appeal to all tastes.
The Zooka retails for £79.99. To learn more about Carbon Audio and the Zooka, please visit www.c14audio.com or take a look at the YouTube video to see the Zooka in action.
