LIL KIKR speaker dock for the iPhone brings one sleek industrial design to the table
Essentially a charging and speaker dock for the iPhone at heart, the LIL KIKR is designed by Mike and Ellie Kemery – they’re both experienced design strategists for recognized brands such as Nike, T-Mobile USA, Under Armour, and much more. This time around, however, they’re getting their hands wet with a high quality designed speaker dock for the iPhone that amplifies sound up to 10db.
Above all, it embodies the same clean design aesthetics found with Apple’s beloved iPhone, as it’s constructed from “premium aircraft grade aluminum and steel.” Therefore, it’ll make the perfect companion if you simply require some additional oomph in terms of audio output. As it currently stands, there are going to be two models available – the LIL KIKR and LIL KIKR+. With the former, it’s designed specifically to work with the iPhone 4/4S without a case, while the LIL KIKR+ is more versatile as it accepts the latest iPod and all iPhones without a case. Both are also available in red, black, and silver anodized colors.
Before coming to life, it’s trying to accumulate some funds through Kickstarter – where it’s currently at $7,000, with a goal of hitting the $20,000 mark within the next 26 days. If all goes according, we can expect to see both versions in the hands of customers by June 2012.
