Trippy -The new wireless speaker that is challenging Bluetooth STOCKHOLM, Trippy, a Stockholm and Shanghai based start-up is challenging Bluetooth with a new wireless speaker.
New technology by Trippy is aimed at creating a more seamless and social wireless speaker.
The idea behind Trippy is to simplify the way sound is transferred from phone to speaker. We want to avoid
the annoyance of dropping Bluetooth connections and the awkward silence at parties when someone else
wants to play music, and you have to wait for a new phone to connect. With a new technology where no
pairing is necessary, Trippy encourages a social interaction around the music, explains Alexander Ocieczek, CEO and co-founder of Trippy.
Trippy introduces the so called Place and Play technology. Four strategically placed sensors inside the
speaker read the electromagnetic fields generated by the phones internal speaker. Trippy then translates this
into conventional electric current that is transmitted to the speaker drums. The music starts streaming at the
same moment as the phone is placed on the speaker.
“Our passion for music, tech and design. The technology is presented in a truly
Scandinavian design, and manufactured in a case of bamboo, a material that is known to be environmentally
friendly and for its acoustic properties”, says Erik Larsson, co-founder of Trippy.
The team behind Trippy Trippy is a Stockholm and Shanghai based start-up founded
by the two friends Alexander Ocieczek and Erik Larsson, both business and law school alumni. Alexander lives in Shanghai and works in management
consulting, and Erik works as a lawyer in Stockholm. The vision of a new generation of wireless speakers
was brought to life from two different sides of the globe.
