This post brought to you by Lenovo. All opinions are 100% mine.
When absorbing retro style into your home, there are usually two ways to go: Hide everything creatively or score some vintage electronics from yesteryear. That Japanese travel alarm is so fetching hiding inside a cuffllink box or Aunt Millicent's tea cozy. The tube socks strewn around the room stretegically hide power cords…that is if you are set dressing for a television special on the early 80s teenager.
Unfortunately, you won't find a 1940s iPod doc. If you fast forward your look into space age retro, the Weltron 2001 "Space Ball" radio was made in the 70s, but somehow it looks just as cozy in swanky 60s decor to a retro 80s flashback. Unfortunately, they didn't make computer implements.
But what do you do with your computer peripheries?
Luckily, there is a Lenovo speaker that looks like the long lost son or little sister or brother of the Sphere, and has that classic retro-astronaut helmut silhouette
They have spooled cords so no tangled bird's nest. All periphery equipment has been switched to spooled cords in lieu of finding a faux telephone cord around the Vintage Abode. Too many wires catch all the cuban heels, platforms, cowboy roper boots and stilettos worn by various members to relax in the morning. A USB cord is all that is required for their 4 watts of sound.
They come in any color you want, so long as it is red. What's more is that through 5/21, which is this coming Monday, you can take them to your leader for $11.99 straight from Lenovo. After that, they return to their vintage April 2012 price of $29.99.
