Ikea and Sonos Want to Make Art That Speaks to You...Literally

Can you hear that? Your Phish black light poster is pumping out some serious jams.

Ikea and Sonos Want to Make Art That Speaks to You...Literally

Ikea and Sonos are collaborating on wall art with a built-in Sonos speaker.

Chris Welch for The Verge:

The Verge has seen an early image of this product, codenamed “Titan,” but details about how it functions couldn’t yet be learned. Specifically, it’s unclear whether the entire artwork print is the product or if the speaker unit can be transferred between different exterior art housings. One of the two new FCC filings from Ikea and Sonos is for a “wireless module.” At a distance, it could look like any of Ikea’s wall prints, only with much more tech on the other side (and a power cord running down from the bottom).

I want a print of Van Gogh's Starry Night that can play Don McLean's "Vincent".
