Filings for a Bluetooth speaker that appears like Jigglypuff made by GameStop’s ThinkGeek model have been published by the Federal Communications Fee. That implies that when you’ve ever needed a real-life Jigglypuff to sing you to sleep, you would possibly be capable of make that dream a actuality someday quickly.
Right here’s what the speaker appears like, from the filings:
It’s cute! I used to be particularly charmed seeing photographs of the Jigglypuff speaker within the lab, just like the one on the high of this put up and a couple extra I discovered in the filings. The photographs with the large highlight virtually make it appear to be Jigglypuff is performing onstage or recording its hit album.
As cute because the Jigglypuff speaker is, although, these kinds of novelty audio system don’t often sound excellent. I haven’t heard it for myself, although, so it’s attainable that is the exception to that rule (though it doesn’t appear too possible). However on the very least, when you simply need to make one thing that appears like Jigglypuff play Jigglypuff’s famous lullaby, this speaker ought to work nice for that.
Based on the manual in the FCC filings, you’ll be ready to connect with the Jigglypuff speaker by way of Bluetooth 5.zero or a 3.5mm headphone jack to play your music. The speaker additionally ought to have 4 to 10 hours of battery life, relying on how loud you flip up the quantity and whether or not you’re utilizing a wired or wi-fi connection (a wi-fi connection will most likely drain the battery a lot sooner). Disappointingly — however unsurprisingly for a novelty toy like this — it fees over Micro USB, not USB-C.
A product hitting the FCC often implies that it’s going to be launched quickly, and we’ve requested GameStop how a lot the speaker will price and whenever you’ll be capable of purchase it at GameStop shops. Should you dwell in Australia, although, the speaker is already out there for preorder at EBGames, one other division of GameStop. EBGames says it should launch on April 1st and can price $58 with a $10 deposit, a whole that interprets to about $47 USD.
