It may be more famous for making typewriters, but Olympia has just revealed what some observers are calling one of the sexiest gadgets of this year’s CeBit: a small device that can turn pretty much any flat surface into a soundboard.


The Soundbug can be plugged into the headphone socket of, for example, an MP3 player or a Walkman and then fixed by suction to the flat surface–effectively turning a desk or window into a speaker.



Set to go on sale in the U.K. for $42.60, the Soundbug–which is roughly the same size as a computer mouse–will be targeted at the youth market, but it is likely to appeal to a much wider range of technology users.
