This, on the right, is the Zikmu Hi-Fi speakers from Parrot. While this has already been out since October, the company has decided to use CES to announce that there will be a red version of the product.
Dubbed the “Red Dragon”, it is obviously red. It joins the colours green, black, white and grey.
The speakers are wireless Hi-Fi stereo speakers that also come with an iPhone/iPod docking station. As well, you can also plug in any audio source via its AUX jack, or hook it up to play content from your computer or phone via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. It also comes with a detachable remote control panel that also acts as the cover for the iPod dock.
It is, however, pretty expensive with a pricetag of $1600. No word when it will be released internationally or domestically in the US. Full press release below.
