This speaker from Japanese company Cotodama will automatically display the lyrics of any song playing through it on its transparent body. Hand-built in Tokyo at a rate of only 15 a month, this ultra-stylised speaker also ‘listens’ to the mood of the music and adapts the fonts, shapes, rate of lyrics and more to match.
It’s all made possible by Cotodama’s partnership with PetitLyrics, Japan’s largest lyric database company with over two million tracks stored. Watch how it works in the video below.
All this fancy tech is going to cost you though – currently retailing at £4,320, it’s not exactly suitable for drunken karaoke sessions.
