This limited edition speaker in black displays animated texts



Japanese company COTODAMA has partnered with the luxury brand Saint Laurent to obtain a limited-edition, all-black version of its Lyric Speaker Canvas, available only at the fashion house's Rive Droite stores. COTODAMA makes two types of Lyric speakers, both of which display the text of a song during music playback.

COTODAMA's Lyric Speaker Canvas was first released last year and the original has a silver and a black design. The silver backboard is the actual speaker, while the black frontboard is the screen where lyrics are displayed. It is a unit, but looks like two pieces and is meant to remind of the idea of ​​record jackets leaning against your wall. The size is a bit bigger than an actual record cover, but not much. The Lyric Speaker Canvas is 1

8.7 inches wide and 14.7 inches high, so it's still fairly compact.

When music is playing, the panel is linked to databases such as PetitLyrics to retrieve the lyrics of a song. Then the lyrics are displayed in time for the song and the mood of the song is analyzed to select fonts and animations. Blocky text that pops on the screen could be paired with a fat pop song, and a driving, handwritten script would be accompanied by a slow ballad. If no text can be found, the screen displays abstract animations that move in sync with the music instead. The COTODAMA website has a sophisticated interactive demonstration that lets you see how the lyrics for different types of songs are displayed.

The speaker connects via Wi-Fi with Airplay, Google Cast and Spotify Connect on the iOS side as well as Google Cast, and Spotify Connect if you have Android. If you're using Android, Amazon Music, Google Play Music, Spotify, and YouTube Music are compatible, and the iOS version also supports Apple Music and some other regional services like KK BOX.
