Electronics are often pretty sterile in nature. Slick and shiny is certainly a cool look, but it’s not very organic or tactile or, honestly, pleasant to hold a lot of the time. The Music Balloon takes a little portable speaker and wraps it up in what looks like a Nerf ball. Inside the 2″ round and squishy case lives a 0.7 watt speaker, a rechargeable battery that lasts about 2 hours, and an audio in jack that doubles as a USB charging port.

You won’t get a lot of oomph out of the Music Balloon, but it’s certainly colorful and, as I like to keep saying, OMG squishable. I’m not sure that makes up for the price, though: $76. For one.

The Music Balloon is available from GeekStuff4U in pink, black, blue, red, or yellow.

  1. I agree with you Evan it does not delivers laud output but the clarity of music is very good. Also the battery back up is 4 hours in maximum volume. It looks cool and is smaller than the size of palm and covering of a colorful foam fabric makes it look soft. It will be very useful in sharing music with your friends. I am looking forward for this New balloon shaped IPod speakers.
