Unboxing the Rocki music streaming device [Video]

The Rocki ($49, $89) streams music from users’ smartphones to their speakers.


The Rocki is a music streaming device that lets users listen to music from their smartphones on their big speakers without having to put their phone down.

The gadget works by hooking up directly to users’ speakers through an auxiliary or RCA cable. Users then connect the device to the same Wi-Fi network as their smartphone so that they can send music over the network and onto the Rocki.

The Rocki is a tiny little gadget that fits in the palm of the hand. It comes in seven skin colors: orange, purple, pink, red, yellow, black and green.

The music streaming device is very light and can be charged using a USB cable. The Rocki is available for $49.

Users can purchase multiple Rocki devices to play music throughout their home on various different speakers and control it all from their smartphone.

Rocki is compatible with both Android and Apple iOS devices. Android users can manage the gadget using an app from Google Play. For now, there is no app for iOS devices, but Apple users can still get the gadget to work with a little bit of tinkering.
