Introducing 'YO' - an iPod and MP3 stereo speaker dock by Victor Vetterlein

YO is a rechargeable and wireless stereo speaker docking station for digital audio players. The system is portable, waterproof, and suitable for indoor and outdoor use.

Inside the dock base are lithium-ion (rechargeable) batteries that are capable of powering the stereo system for hours when the unit is disconnected from a power source. The design intention is that a renewable energy source such as solar power, wind power, or hydroelectricity charges the battery packs when the stereo is not in use.

The speakers also contain lithium-ion batteries in their base, and recharge when placed in the stereo base portals. The batteries also provide high-density ballast enabling the speakers to stand upright when removed from the charging ports.

The speaker enclosure is designed to amplify sound. The speakers are mounted in the rear of the speaker housing. Similar to a megaphone, the front portion of the speaker enclosure is extruded to increase and direct sound.

Two removable rods are mounted between the stereo speakers to stabilize the stereo assembly and provide a lifting handle when the unit is transported.

    yo! can it also squeeze oranges?
    or are the oranges also decoration, like the claim it can be recharged by solar, wind or hydroelectric power? so can any electrical appliance, just saying it does not make it eco-friendly.

    I want an explanation for the golf ball oranges and wine glass OH WAIT I figured it out.

  • Gabs

    No, the oranges are making up for all the whiteness.

    I like the pillow like depression where the speakers meet the base.
    This makes the speakers and the system more organic with the allusion to skin. A quite original design thought.
