I love to tailgate at football games. Nothing beats throwing the ball around and blaring some music while you get pumped up. Typically, we have a Bluetooth speaker going like the JBL Xtreme and a NERF Vortex whizzing around. But what if it was possible to combine both of these tailgate must-haves into one product?
The new BRO Ball does just that. According to this Kickstarter project, it is the “world’s first” Bluetooth speaker in football. The design itself looks pretty sweet and would likely be the hit of your next tailgate or day at the beach. After spending a lot of time on the design and securing patents, the BRO Ball is ready for funding. Head below for more details.
The idea behind BRO Ball is fairly simple: combine two classic outdoor must-haves into one product. What’s even more notable is the design behind the product. BRO Ball has paid special attention to many of the areas that fall short on other Bluetooth speakers. The guys behind this project say the football can be thrown roughly 50 yards away from your device before loosing connection. Additionally, it is water resistant and can float for up to 30 minutes.
BRO Ball is also designed with football fans in mind. The weight is evenly balanced throughout to ensure you aren’t throwing any embarrassing lame ducks to your friends. On top of being waterproof, the BRO Ball is designed to take a beating. The video below shows the ball taking a seven story drop to the street and still playing after making contact.
A six hour lithium-ion battery is recharged via a covered USB port. The built-in power bank can be used to power your device if you’re in a jam. With 17 days remaining, the BRO Ball has raised just under half of its $75,000 goal. An early bird pledge of $59 will deliver this football speaker next summer. Additional pledge levels are available that bring other goodies. Of course, if you don’t need to throw your speaker around, there are other football-shaped options out there.
