Kima Wireless Audio Streaming

Kima KS110n is Two alarm-clock sized boxes that transport sound wirelessly from a computer or anything else with a headphone jack such as a portable CD player to a stereo or portable radio.

The Kima comes in two parts: a base station that plugs into a home computer (or a television, stereo or DVD) and a receiver, which is placed near a radio receiver or even a portable radio. The base unit sends a wireless signal to the receiver, which rebroadcasts through the radio’s speakers. The signal is sent over 900 MHz (the same frequency used for cordless phones) and can be sent up to 1,000 feet away, which means that users can hear Rush Limbaugh, MP3’s or the sound of a Windows error message from anywhere in their homes or yards.

“You can build a play list on your [computer] jukebox or tune in to a jazz station from Brazil or a favorite sports team in a faraway city and listen at your pool,” said Niko Drakoulis, 28, founder and chief executive of Akoo.com. “And unlike other technology on the market, Kima can be used with a $10,000 home entertainment system or a $10 clock/radio.”

Kima is distributed by Akoo’s radio station partners and soon is expected to be available in retail stores under brand names of electronics manufacturers.

Unlike its competitors, Kerbango, which recently was purchased by 3Com, does not need to be hooked up to a computer. It is a stand-alone radio that will pull in Internet radio stations via an Internet connection. The device sells for only $99 USD.
