Audio accessory manufacturer QDOS presents the Genesis 360º portable sound system.
Genesis packs four 3W speakers and a ‘universal’ dock slot compatible with any iPod. The unit is powered by a quartet of AA batteries, enough for eight hours of playtime, the company said, and will charge the player when connected to the main conduit. There is a mini USB port on board and an audio jack.
The cylindrical insert is 12.5 cm high and 11.5 cm in diameter, but a clever mechanism allows it to be folded up to 8.5 cm high for storage. It weighs 800g.
Available immediately, Genesis costs around £ 90 from UK QDOS distributor Widget.
