The Hidden Radio speaker is slick, clever and almost real

The Hidden Radio is a Bluetooth speaker that has been teased for years. The team behind it has been cranking away at making it happen ever since it got some play on various blogs like Kottke.org a few years ago.

Now, the guys have a Kickstarter campaign up and running and you can pre-order yours to help get this thing into production.

The Hidden Radio is a Bluetooth speaker that has a simple but crafty design. To power on and pair the device, simply twist the top cap. This will activate it, but it also begins to open up a chamber inside the device that increases the volume coming out of the speakers.

You can pair multiple units up to your device and place them throughout the house, activating each as you move from room to room. The team says that it hits 80db at top volume and has a 30+ hour battery life.

The team has spent $5ok building the unit so far and are looking for 1000 people to pre-order units, giving them the ability to set up molding tools, Bluetooth certifications and an initial run of the devices. I certainly want to see this thing get made, it looks fantastic.

You can check out the Kickstarter campaign here, where you can pre-order a Hidden Radio for $119.
