As the market fills with wireless Bluetooth speakers like the Jawbone Jambox, those old iPod speaker docks that force you to, you know, actually physically connect hardware like some sort of troglodyte are starting to look at little lame. It’s especially tough if you’ve switched from iOS to another platform. Now the speaker dock just sits there collecting dust! Well, break out the feather duster; there’s a product to turn all those docked dust-traps into wireless Bluetooth speakers.
A new Kickstarter project called the Pear connects to the 30-pin connectors of iPod/iPhone docks and transforms them into wireless Bluetooth speakers. Not only does this give new life to old docks, it also extends the docks to support Android devices. Perfect for switchers. And if Apple ever does ditch the 30-pin connector, a Pear will future-proof your old speaker sets.
According to the developers, if you can pair a Bluetooth headset, you can pair the Pear. Having your device send audio wirelessly to a speaker frees it up to stay with you. This is especially helpful for social media butterflies, or anyone waiting for an important call. The phone stays with you instead of held hostage by the dock.
Find the bluetooth adaptor and go over here now now.
