Light Harmonic has done this crowdfunding thing before. Specifically, they completed a campaign to the tune of $303,000+ on Kickstarter in September of this year for the Geek Out, a digital-to-analog converter for laptops that aimed to pump up the tunes coming out of a headphone jack.
Now the same team has taken to Indiegogo to fund a similar product called the Geek Pulse, which is essentially a desktop version of the Geek Out with a few extra features. The Pulse is also powered on a typical DC circuit versus the Geek Out’s USB-powered design.
The Geek Pulse is really a result of crowd feedback from Light Harmonic’s first campaign. The crowd resoundingly asked for a feature-packed, more stationary version of the Geek Out. Light Harmonic delivered and the crowd has rewarded the Sacramento-based company with big-time funding.
How much funding? Incredibly, the campaign for the Geek Pulse has already raised over a quarter of a million dollars in just a couple of weeks. The Indiegogo fixed funding campaign has 39 days to go at the time of writing.
Geek Pulse’s 3D Awesomifier electronically duplicates what happens naturally when we listen to sound through a stereo. Sometimes this technology is called “crossfeeding,” but Geek Pulse does it in a very unique way, using both digital and analog technologies proprietary to LH Labs.
Devices can connect to the Pulse via a 1/4″ headphone jack or RCA outputs for larger speakers. There is also an available Bluetooth addition that allows smartphones and other devices to stream music wirelessly to the Pulse using Bluetooth 4.0.
