If you are in the market looking for nifty gadgets, the TimeBox speaker clock radio from Divoom will make you take a second look!
Divoom's TimeBox is a quality sounding Bluetooth speaker with awesome functionality that include smart alarm clock, social media notification adviser, sleep-aid and 121 addressable RGB LEDs, each of which can be individually set to a certain color to create a Pixel art animation.
You can make your own pixel animation on the Timebox via the TimeBox app and the results you get are pretty awesome, The quality of these gem-designed LEDs is so vivid that art creations really jump at you. The luminosity produced by these LEDS equals that of a 3-watt lamp.
In player mode, the TimeBox speaker clock radio allows you to toggle between pre-set LED art creations that will dance at the beat of any music track you play. 
the LED brightness can also be adjusted via hand-clapping

The TimeBox has a square shape so it measures 11cm high and 11cm across. It's around 5cm wide and weights 383 grams. The picture below shows the back end of the Timebox with a metal grill that protects the speaker. The outer casing has a white matt UV coating.
The TimeBox has a built-in 3.7V 2500mAh battery that is recharged fully in 3.5 hours via micro USB cable at 5-volts/1-amp. 
The other two ports on the TimeBox are the AUX In to connect a male 3.5mm jack to a 3.5 mm audio source, and an AUX out.
The AUX output is a nifty feature that not many Bluetooth speakers feature, which allows you to connect another speaker to the TimeBox to enhance its sound.
The TimeBox's speaker has a frequency response between 60Hz and 20000Hz and the wireless range is up to 10 meters.
Other practical features you get with the TimeBox are a built-in FM tuner, built-in microphone and temperature sensor reading
