Kicking off the top 20 in our countdown of the hottest 100 gadgets on the planet is the Sonos Playbar
This Sonos Playbar sits below your telly, and connects to your Sonos network as well as your home cinema system, so it can soundtrack your movies or be on musical duties for the lounge part of your party.
It has nine speakers in all: six mid-woofers and three tweeters, so explosions should be suitably tie-blown-over-the-shoulder. You can control it with the app on your iOS or Android device, and it’ll play nice with your Sonos subwoofer or PLAY:3 speakers. Is any room safe from Sonos’ dominance?
