Danger! There's a '60s British rock vibe lurking 'round Gabriel Sound Garage's Stinger amp, and I know some people won't like that. Never fear, however—just turn the knob to the "Yank" setting and let the tunes floooow.
The ArkCanary II is an analog acoustic iPhone speaker, designed rather like an updated antique gramophone. The maker plans to get it to retail for around $13 if it gets enough funding via Kickstarter—and is so hopeful of doing so with the help of a "manufacturer in Korea" there's already a pre-order page up and…
Straight from California comes one of the sleekest headphones amps I've seen. I could just leave you to gaze at its two fiery eyes—sorry, tubes—but what sort of tech site would we be if we didn't discuss specs?
Alex Proyas and Summit have just nabbed the rights to Daniel H. Wilson's latest novel AMP a book about what happens when technology gives the disabled superpowers.
