SING IT BACK
This artful Wi-fi connected speaker features a futuristic translucent LCD display that flashes up the words to a song in time with the music. The Japanese design, appropriately named ‘Lyric’, also analyses the tempo and structure of a tune as it plays, and changes its display accordingly. For instance, words to a ballad show up in softer fonts, while rock and heavy metal would look more angular. A treat for the eyes and the ears, but it doesn’t come cheap. £2,500 ( lyric-speaker.com).
