The tiny, $29 gadget can mix two audio sources with a simple fader, allowing friends to share the acoustic landscape and mix in effects in realtime.
As with all crowdfunding efforts, caveat emptor: the team have a working prototype and a quote for a full production run if they can meet their minimum order, and have some product development background, but this is a much more ambitious project than their previous efforts. But it's a clever and elegant device, and the financial risk is minimal. $75 gets you one in an aluminum case.
Simply by connecting two audio sources to your Openmix and plugging it into a speaker or sound system, you can share and mix music anywhere with anyone! Thanks to a miniaturized audio crossfader, the user can quickly mix back and forth between two tracks or create a smooth transition from the end of one song to the beginning of another.

It’s almost shocking to say…but there’s actually an incredible amount of manhood wrapped up in how well you cook a steak. Of course, no one would argue your grilling abilities are THAT important. Or that how well you sear a prime slab of beef should have any bearing on your social standing or feeling of […]
The notion of two people sleeping in the same bed always inspires romantic visions of love and intimacy. However, most quickly realize that the romance of sleeping together is often quickly replaced by the realities of the act. One partner snores. The other talks in their sleep. One grinds their teeth. The other hogs the […]
