Vertus Makes Any Speaker Bluetooth Friendly
A new Kickstarter project for the Vertus, which has already reached its $40,000 funding goal on the site, allows you to share music via Bluetooth to more than just one speaker.
Here’s how it works: If a friend comes over with, say, a Jawbone Jambox and starts playing music, you will be able to connect an older speaker so both devices play the same song. The speakers can be in the same room, right next to each other or other parts of the house.
The Vertus receiver pops in to each speaker dock, and you have to select one as “right speaker” and the other “as left speaker.” The only thing that’s needed is a 3.5mm port and a smartphone to send the audio via Bluetooth.
The Vertus is completely wireless and runs for about 10 hours without a battery charge. To recharge, the device plugs into a mini USB port in a computer.
