Tech Squibs: DBEST London Twists Up Some Tunes

DBEST London's PS4007BT allows you to twist your speaker system into various shapes.

SQUIB: a : a short humorous or satiric writing or speech; b : a short news item. (Merriam-Webster)

This Tech Squib surprises the world with the news that your soundsystem can look like a muffler pipe or a Calder statue.

DBEST London builds upscale audio accessories for modern fashion and design savvy customers. Whether they're serving up Bluetooth speakers or smartphone audio docks, DBEST likes to serve up images of their products entertaining young fashion models and tuxedo'd men.

The company's flare for the showier aspects of audio shines through nowhere more clearly than the PS4007BT Transformer. Sporting a curve design marked with hinged elbows, the wired and Bluetooth wireless music playback system can be twisted and shifted into different shapes. If that physical feature was all it had going for it, the Transformer would just be a gimmick item. But the sound says otherwise.

The Transformer packs powerful amplifiers for a bigger sound that you might expect. You can plug in your MP3 player, connect via Bluetooth or play songs stored in the Transformer's own standalone player.

Compatible for connectivity with Apple or PC computers to control content, the PS4007BT retails for about $250.
