Century - Smartphone speaker "BrickS"

Century released a LEGO brick-shaped smartphone speaker called BrickS.

Right after you take BrickS out of the package, you are able to start using the speaker without any complicated initial settings. You need neither to connect a cable or install an application. Because of NearFA (Near Field Audio) wireless audio technology that transmits smartphone sounds to a close-range amp speaker, the sound from your smartphone's speaker becomes a powerful sound just by placing the smartphone on BrickS.
