A 3D-printed teddy bear that plays songs from Spotify. If this was a Kickstarter campaign, we’d have our wallets out already. It’s not… yet. Instead, Spotibear is a prototype product from designer Andreas Lindahl, which has been showed off this week. It’s a teddy bear-shaped toy with a Raspberry Pi B+ computer inside, capable of streaming songs from Spotify as well as playing audio stories for children.
Its individual pieces have to be 3D-printed then glued and sanded – a process that doesn’t sound quite ready for the mass market yet. Also, a streaming music teddy bear should probably be furry, no? Even so, it’s an interesting example of the kind of products that could be integrating streaming music services in the future.
