    I just saw a video showing new products from the CES that featured a cool product called the Mighty Dwarf (bluetooth model) which is a "vibration resonance speaker". It turns almost any surface into a speaker. I had never heard of this before and it looks really cool. I googled this type of speaker and it seems that there are other brands also. Coincidentally a friend of mine just bought one called the Speaker Genie and brought it over to demonstrate it. The sound may not be the best in the world but it is acceptable for what it does. I think it is one of the coolest things I have seen in a long time. I plugged it into my Galaxy Nexus and I turned my kitchen table into a speaker, then I put the contact on my refrigerator and turned it into a speaker! I knew then that I had to have one. I think I want a bluetooth rechargeable one like I saw on the video. Does anyone here have one of these? If so, where did you buy it? There are some on Amazon, but I haven't found a bluetooth model yet but I am still looking.

    Anybody have any experience with one of these?

    Here are links to the two companies I mentioned:

    Mighty Dwarf and Speaker Genie

    There are other makers as well. There are many youtube videos about vibration resonance technology. Here is a video demonstrating another brand using the technology: Mighty Mouse Resonance Speaker - YouTube

    Here is another one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4zS88nu0OyM&feature=related

    and another: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYsKBNDteIQ

    You can search Youtube and find many others. Here is a sample search:

    I don't know how the quality is on upper-end models, but I've seen smaller versions come through here (one was called the iRock-It or something), and while neat in theory, my speaker on my phone was louder and better sounding than almost anything I put this thing against. The biggest thing I didn't like aside from that, was that these I had, you physically had to peel and stick this thing to your object. It wasn't like, static, or even one of those re-usable style sticky pads. It was like double-sided tape, and had to be reapplied whenever you put it on something else.

    I really wouldn't mind seeing the higher quality ones in action though, to see how the tech is progressing.
