Another day, another Kickstarter project.It’s a fully-equipped Bluetooth speaker that looks quite rugged. It also has a great selection of mounting accessories so you can listen to your music and accept calls where ever you go. The cool thing is, it’s made for the outdoors with the IP5X dust and waterproof standard.
Coming in a variety of different colors, no matter what your style is, there is a Turtle Shell for you. There are easy-to-use controls that allow you to control your tracks, volume and calls just with a touch of a button. In terms of battery life, it runs off a rechargeable Li-On battery which Outdoor Technology quotes to last about 10 hours with high quality sound. For those that love taking calls while on the go, Turtle Shell also has a built in microphone for accepting calls.
Outdoor Tech outfitted The Turtle Shell with The Turtle Claw all-purpose clamp allowing you to easily mount to a bike or baby stroller. The Turtle Shell has a number of patents pending including the first ever camera threading on a speaker allowing it to attach to any standard camera accessory such as a flexible tripod. The Turtle Claw is sold separately for a suggested retail price of $19.95. “At Outdoor Tech, our mantra is about using design and creation to bring you stuff you probably want.” said Caro Krissman, Co-Founder and CEO “The Shell is a wireless audio breakthrough that taps the full potential of your mobile device whether you’re a bike messenger, a mom on the go , hitting the beach or just want the best sounding and looking mobile wireless speaker.
We’re excited to bring this epic, game changing, action oriented speaker to the Kickstarter community” Turtle Shell is expected to retail for $149.95 and with a pledge of $99 you have the chance to receive one of the first Turtle Shell’s in black, white, red, blue, green, pink and sea foam.
