Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, October 23, 2013

A coffee cup holder Bluetooth speaker.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   It is called the SpeeCup, an impressive Bluetooth speaker shaped like a travel mug so it fits neatly into a vehicle cup holder.   And it is designed with the technology to take advantage of the capabilities of some of the newest smartphones.   CEO Gus Jockers…

“One of the things that we find an awful lot of people doing is voice commands, either Siri on Apple devices or S Voice on Android devices.  And so we have located in the center a large button and you just press that briefly and it initiates voice command.”

The SpeeCup, which comes in white, black or red, has a convenient audio output jack for connecting to the speaker system in your car.   It’s on the pricey side, at about a hundred thirty dollars.   There’s more info at s p e e c u p dot com.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
