You heard of the collaboration and now here they are, the IKEA x Sonos Speakers. After much anticipation, Sonos finally serves up some details on the products born out of this collaboration between the flatpack furniture giant and the American speaker maker. For starter, two products were announced: a table lamp/speaker hybrid called Symfonisk table lamp and Symfonisk bookshelf speaker that can literally double as a shelf. So, yeah, both products are also furniture (or in the case of the lamp, lighting) which is what IKEA is about. Clever. Very clever.

If there’s one furniture maker that will keep up with time, it would be IKEA. The Swedish flatpack furniture maker is progressive, getting into wireless charging and connected lighting products early on, and now, it is dishing out smart home-ready blinds too. Called IKEA FYRTUR Smart Blinds, it features an opaque fabric to effectively stop sunlight from penetrating into the room, but more importantly, it is smart. The blind is motorized, but it requires no electrical installation. Instead, it draws power from a lithium-ion battery pack that recharges with the included USB power bank.

You can find skateboard being sold everywhere. However, the last place you probably expect to find skateboards is IKEA. Well, as it turns out, Ikea USA indeed do sell skateboards and it is called IKEA Spänst Skateboard Cruiser. Spänst is, btw, no way related to skateboard. It is loosely translated to “elasticity.” Is IKEA trying to say its skateboard is flexible like rubber? That, I do not know. Jokes, aside, Spänst is not quite the name of the skateboard; it is a collection. Continue reading Believe It Or Not, IKEA USA Is Selling Skateboard Too

The current solution is, pay for the delivery and assembly, but that may change in future and you can thank Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore for it.

Continue reading Tony Stark-style Robotic Arms Could Be Assembling Ikea Furniture For You
