That’s the idea behind Audio Streaming Box, a WiFi streamer that lets TVs get in the game.
The ASB is a palm-sized portable device that uses the WiFi Hotspot approach to deliver streaming audio to a mobile app. ASB users connect the box to the TV to broadcast the sound. Listeners connect their mobile devices to the N-Sound Hotspot, then launch a companion app.
Developer Keith Cheung sees the ASB delivering high-quality audio in a variety of situations including, bars, restaurants, gyms, lecture halls, waiting rooms or tour buses.
Cheung hopes to raise $15,467 through Kickstarter to get the ASB into production. The first retail units are scheduled to be available in December, 2016 for $1,200. Early backers can get one for $680 plus shipping ($150 for US destinations).
