JBL by Harman, one of several audio brands now under the Harman group owned by Samsung, has just announced two new Bluetooth speakers made for parties, reminiscent of something Sony already offers. They're not only huge but also offer their own light shows — just in case your house party wasn't already the hottest ticket in town.
Advertising can get pretty stale these days, so it's always nice to see something different. ASUS took "different" and ran with it, throwing 89 ZenFone 5s on dancer Ian Eastwood to advertise the ZenFone 5/5z. The result is... quite the spectacle.
Auckland GTUG, a New Zealand-based Google Technology User Group, uploaded a video to YouTube today demonstrating the power of the Android Open Accessory platform via an impressive Christmas-themed light show.
A product of GTUG's November coding session, the light show is controlled by an Acer Iconia A500 tablet, and the controller app allows for predetermined sequencing of up to 9 channels, and even supports syncing with music. Without further ado, here's the video:
On that note, all of us here at Android Police would like to wish you and yours a happy holiday season, and a joyous new year!
