Edoardo Bosio Starts Indiegogo Fundraiser for the Creation of 'Pelty - the Bluetooth Speaker Powered by Fire'

Pelty transforms the thermal energy of a candle into electric energy to amplify music! It has been designed and hand-made in Italy, in ceramic & glass.

 

Matawan, NJ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/25/2014 -- Pelty represents a technological revolution in the high-quality audio speakers’ market: it is the first Bluetooth speaker literally powered by fire. Pelty works transforming the thermal energy generated by the heat of a candle into the electric energy necessary to power-up the speakers, with an excellent audio quality. There is neither battery nor electric plug-in; only the primitive energy of fire makes it work. It's elegant, it's eco-friendly, it's hand-made in Italy with natural materials (ceramic & glass), and it's unique.

Pelty is an elegant device with a refined taste addressing all the people willing to stand out from the idea that technology needs batteries, wires and an electrical plug. It’s designed for music-lovers willing to have an excellent audio quality and for design-lovers willing to be surrounded by original devices. Pelty is very easy to be used. Place the lit candle, wait a few seconds, and it is ready to connect to any Bluetooth device, like smartphones and tablets, from which the customer can easily change track and set the volume.

The creators have already covered the costs to improve the engineering and the design of Pelty, making it as powerful and elegant they could, keeping in mind the goal of developing a very simple, functional device. The prototyping phase took 6 months because the team faced several issues with suppliers and to improve Pelty’s efficiency.

The largest share of donated funds will be used to rent a space where Pelty will be assembled and prepared for shipping. Moreover, further R&D activity is needed: improvements in materials used and optimization of the components will be pursued, in order to improve Pelty’s performance. Backers will also help find an optimal packaging that must be both safe and environment-friendly. Besides that, funding is also required to participate in a startup fair in Italy, to show the first prototypes of Pelty to a crowd of journalists and other interested people. Finally, funds are also needed to make further tests on prototypes and get CE certification.
