This peculiar looking gadget is infact a cunningly portable speaker. Similar to the Nimzy Vibro MAX, it uses vibrations to transform other inanimate objects into its personal amplifying slave, but it's called on some space age technology to do so.The secret is the suitably pseudo-scientifically named material, Terfenol-D, developed by US Naval types for sonar. It resides inside an aluminium case with a coil dutifully wrapped around it. When electricity is passed through, the whole caboodle expands to create a pressure equivalent to a hefty 400lbs – roughly the same as two of the larger members of the Stuff team.Plonk it on a wall, cupboard, desk, large slab of MDF or anything else you can lay your hands on and it'll pump out tunes from any MP3 player connected via the headphone jack.They're in now at Firebox in black, white or pink. Get 'em before the US Navy asks for its Terfenol-D back.Essentials I-MU Vibro Speakers Price: £50 On sale: Now Contact: Firebox.com Related stories: Gadget of the Day – Samsin SBS-6600 Bluetooth Speakers Gadget of the Day – Nimzy Vibro MAX Nimzy blasts away travel speaker foes
