If you managed to attend CES this year, you might have come across the iFrogz Boost speaker (as pictured above). For those who might have missed the news or who might have forgotten, the iFrogz Boost speaker is basically a speaker that the user will be able to rest their iPhone on top of, and without having to connect any sort of wires or pairing it with Bluetooth, it apparently will be able to amplify the sound from your iPhone device.
If we had to guess, we’d say that the iFrogz Boost speaker is able to do that by placing a finely tuned microphone near the iPhone’s speakers, thus capturing the audio and boosting it to slightly louder levels. However according to iFrogz, this is not the case and the technology used is NearFA, which apparently syncs the audio signal in the phone with the speakers which then is output through its 2W x 2RMS speakers.
The iFrogz Boost speakers can be powered by three AA batteries or through a micro USB cable, and is being advertised as offering up to 15 hours of play time when used with batteries. If you’re interested in picking one up for yourself, head on over to iFrogz’ website where you will be able to order it for $39.99.
