Touchscreen specialist Zytronic from the UK has unveiled the concept of an unusual speaker made of glass, which uses entirely wireless drivers and is barely thicker than a sheet of paper.
Zytronic shows speaker made of glass
At TECH.CON Austria and Light + Building in Frankfurt, Zytronic unveiled an exciting and classy glass speaker based on a new Electroglaz technology. The technology allows devices to be powered invisibly via glass panels.
Apart from the stand, the hi-fi system is apparently hardly thicker than a sheet of paper. As invidis reports, the innovative concept is designed to wirelessly connect and power a media player, LC display, LED lighting and the two speaker drivers.
According to the manufacturer, only low voltages can be transmitted with the help of the technology, but it seems to be enough to power a speaker, displays and lighting, which is pretty impressive in and of itself (and looks it).

Touch control in the glass
Of course, the system itself already needs to be powered. This is where the large stand comes into play, which accommodates the power cable. The Zytronic system is operated via touch control, whereby carved elements on the surface of the glass are supposed to provide a tactile feel.
It is important to remember, however, that the Zytronic Hi-Fi system is merely a concept that is unlikely to reach the market in this form. It does, however, impressively demonstrate what is technologically possible in the meantime.
The design could have come straight out of a science fiction movie and definitely whets our appetite for the technical innovations that could await us from next year. After all, it is not too long until CES 2023.
