Honey, Fender shrunk the Amplifier!

Fender, arguably the world’s most famous guitar and amplifier manufacturing brand, whose guitars have been the preferred weapons of choice for legends like Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, John Mayer, Mark Knopfler, and Nile Rodgers, decided to venture into a new market with their series of Bluetooth Speakers (a first for the brand). Just like Marshall decided to foray into the speaker and headphone market, Fender decided to bring their decades of expertise in speaker and amplifier-making to the portable audio world.

I’ve been a long standing admirer of Fender’s guitars, and the prospect of owning a bluetooth speaker by them absolutely excites me! The Fender Newport, classic and chic, comes with a triple driver system comprising two woofers and one tweeter, and a 3.5mm input at the back. The speaker is styled as an amplifier too, with a metal grill on the front and knobs/controls (for controlling the volume, bass, and treble) on the top with the classic analog style toggle switch (for on/off) found on most amplifiers and guitars even today. A must have for any true-blue music fanatic!

The Coolest Laptop-cooling-stand

aluminum_laptop_stand_1

This one-piece aluminum laptop stand has a two-fold purpose. It serves as a barrier between your heated laptop base and your lap (or your desk), and its unique slatted design helps it act like a massive heatsink, pulling the heat from your laptop and distributing it across the multiple aluminum ‘fins’ at the base, and then dissipating it into the air. The fins/slats help increase the surface area so the heat gets lost at a faster rate, allowing the laptop stand to effectively cool the laptop without having to be plugged in. They even go as far as helping with wire-separation/segregation. Plus, its machined aluminum design goes together rather well with laptops having an aluminum body (case in point being the Macbook, obviously).

The Lynko’s design makes it the perfect, pinterest-worthy storage for any room. Be it the kitchen, bedroom, or study room, its modular design and storage system gives it instant appeal, making it probably the world’s thinnest and prettiest storage system.

Lynko was designed to be character-shifting, making it nomadic. A few simple adjustments would make it an ideal decorative book and plant-shelf for the living room, while a change here or there would make it perfect for the kitchen. The Lynko was therefore designed to mirror its user’s character and reflect their needs, becoming a piece of furniture that’s not just functional but personal too. Plus, with its folding schematic, it’s also easy to carry around the house!

The Lynko is a winner of the A’ Design Award in the Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design Category.
