Buy a Piece of HiddenRadio


It may look like the latest in room fresheners, but the HiddenRadio and Bluetooth speaker is simply a basic device without the glitz. Audio is increased to 80dB when you turn it on and a 3.5mm socket is a convenient plug-in for other audio electronics. A built-in AM/FM radio provides extra listening options and it will go for 30+ hours before needing a charge. A $119.00 donation at Kickstarter will ensure you as one of the first recipients.
