Decibel, a wireless Bluetooth speaker, is the longest lasting, most upgradeable, most sustainable product of its kind. Decibel’s creators are poised to change the direction of consumer technology products. How so? The Module Project, a New Zealand-based start-up, plans on designing and manufacturing high-tech products that combine innovation with sustainability.
By changing our purchasing decisions and “designing the best product in many categories,” Module hopes to protect the environment from “throw-away” devices that are currently destroying our planet.
The company’s first attempt at changing the world: the Decibel Bluetooth speaker. Designed with an array of modules, fully customizable by its user, every component on the Decibel is replaceable. Just remove the back of the chassis (four simple hex screws) and you have access to every electrical component of Module’s futuristic speaker. All parts are 100% recyclable and built from the highest quality, longest lasting materials. From its stainless steel exterior shell to its front mounting volume knob, everything on the Decibel is strategically engineered to enhance user functionality.
Decibel, powered by an industry standard 18650 rechargeable lithium ion battery, is completely replaceable and is part of a long list of components contributing to the speaker’s sustainability. When the time comes to replace the rechargeable battery, even though Module claims that won’t be for years, users can purchase the replacement online and with a prepaid return label, send back the non-working one for recycling.
With Decibel’s product slogan being “Designed for the future, built now,” buyers will have no concern over the sound quality of Module’s smart speakers. Engineered to ensure optimal sound, Decibel will feature two ultra powerful bass drivers and a response tweeter. In other words, Decibel will blow your socks off. Powerful enough to compete with the Bose sounds system and with the added bonus of a fully recyclable, sustainable product.
Decibel has a projected delivery date of “sometime in 2017” and to illustrate Module’s confidence in their product, interested investors can purchase stock in the company at .21c per share. With $1.2 million shares (10% of the company) offered in their first AlphaCrowd equity round, it seems like The Module Project is poised to disrupt the sustainable consumer electronics industry sooner versus later.
Decibel by Module solves a major issue in the exploding consumer technology sector: high-quality, long-lasting, eco-friendly products. Described by The Modular Project founders in their Decibel launch video: “Consumers are buying products that are lasting for only a brief time. They are sticking them in drawers or throwing them away and because of it, customers are being ripped off and the environment is being destroyed.” Planning to extend their vision across all product categories, whether that is dishwashers or laptops, The Module Project put their sustainable vision in motion and now has the backing to extend their product portfolio.
