The Allo is a the culmination of several things we’ve seen or done recently. It’s the first phone holder with integrated speaker we’ve seen, and it solves quite a few first world problems all at once. Want music, navigation and the ability to speakerphone your friends while they’re stuck at work? Look no further.
Tune into the video and more after the break…
The unit comes with a universal clamp to grab the handlebar. The speaker case snaps onto it, and the top of the case swivels open to insert your phone. As you slide it in, it presses into the headphone jack, thus connecting the phone to the speaker. It’s powered by two AAA batteries and pumps out 80-90 decibels. (Side note: Sanyo’s Eneloop are hands down the best rechargeable batteries out there. I’ve been using them for years with zero issues.)
It’s on Kickstarter, naturally, and they’re well on their way to hitting the goal. With a planned delivery date of September 2014, you can nab one for as little as $40 during the campaign. Kickstarter page here, and his homepage is here.
