Portable Speaker Lets You Listen to Emojis

An emoji is worth a thousand words and now sounds, too!

Telesound, a portable speaker, allows emoji fans to send more than 1,000 audio emojis from a smartphone or tablet.  The “portable sound’ messenger connects via Bluetooth and uses a free iPhone or Android app to send emojis.

How it works: Each emoji is linked to a corresponding sound. Once sent, it automatically plays on your friend’s TeleSound. If he or she doesn’t want to hear a sound, the user can turn the device over to go offline. The TeleSound is available on Kickstarter for $34.

Why I’m Curious:

This device is indicative of a trend in which people are bringing traditionally mobile, digital and social things into “real-life” and underscores how people are always looking to get more out of their smartphones.  It’s also interesting to observe how the emoticon has evolved from 😉 to a primary communication tool.
