hearO Tennis Ball Speaker / $70
Every year, Wimbledon goes through over 50,000 tennis balls to ensure they're in perfect shape throughout the matches. Some of the Slazenger balls used during the 2022 tournament found their way to Rogue Projects, and have been turned into hearO speakers. A carbon-neutral product, it retains much of the original ball as an outer shell, with a speaker grille on the rear top and a power coil on the bottom. It offers one-button simplicity and uses Bluetooth 5.0 to pair not just with audio sources but also with a second unit for true stereo sound. Designed and assembled in London, it arrives with a charging cradle and USB cable.
