If you really want music all throughout your house without going to the cost and trouble of an expensive speaker setup, “Plug + Enjoy” will solve all your problems. These little speakers sit on electrical outlets and include FM receivers designed to pick up signals from iPods and Smartphones with FM Transmitters.
The concept, envisioned by designer Jinseup Ted Shin is simple to work. Turn the knob until you find a signal, wait for it to lock in, then turn to adjust the volume.
Its a great sounding concept, but my experience with FM Transmitters – mostly from my pre-bluetooth-in-cars days – always proves that FM transmit crap soon. Merge that with a speaker the size of a plug and I’m not expecting to musically power a major-rager anytime soon. All I can imagine is this tiny thin sound being muffled by the desk or sofa.
It was a nice idea.
