going gaga over your myriad sources of music collection? yeah. we know how it is like. thanks to innovation like the Olive ONE All-In-One Home Music System, that could be very well be, well, gaga no more. so what the heck exactly is the Olive ONE? well, the Olive ONE is essentially a music server, something which Olive is pretty damn good at (and has been doing since 2005), that allows you to access all your music collection, be it they are on your smartphone, tablet, NAS or computer, all from one single device. it even offers access to current favorite music services such as Pandora and Spotify (and of course, YouTube) and if you fork some extra cash, you can have a hard drive stuff into it, thereby turning the Olive ONE into your personal music Cloud serving your home entertainment needs. other features include a beautiful touchscreen interface, Olive’s proprietary audiophile audio technology, Bluetooth 4.0 and ultra-fast dual band WiFi connectivity, Wi-Fi Direct (WiDi), UPnP for sharing your collection in your network, navigate and play your music on your TV via WiFi Miracast, open architecture for app developers and artists to further explore the device’s potential, access to cloud services such as Amazon Locker, iTunes Match and even Google Play and last but not least, a customizable design (colors, to be more specific) to your fancy in fine aluminum and glass materials. and one of the deal-sweetener is, it will be hand-built in the City by the Bay aka San Francisco, USA. surprisingly (or not), Olive has taken this project to crowdfunding platform, INDIE GOGO and is seeking your support to make this sleek device a reality and all you need to secure one is to pledge $349 or more (or $399 after December 12, 2012) and it could be yours if this project makes its funding goal. check out a few more look and a pledge video after the break.
