The company was showing off its inMotion Air speaker, which allows you to stream music from your computer via a special wireless dongle. When connected to a computer via the adaptor, the inMotion Air has a range of 100 yards to stream playlists, internet radio or other audio content."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1294487076.usr11334.jpg" style="border: #d2d2bb 1px solid;" /></p><p>I have a portable wireless bluetooth speaker that I use on my travels so I can listen to music in my hotel room, and I have always been impressed by the distance my mobile phone can be away from the speaker and it still play the music clearly.&nbsp; However, 100yds is a seriously impressive distance to transmit music. Admittedly this&nbsp;requires a proprietary usb stick to be in your PC to achieve the 100yds, but nevertheless, it's still&nbsp;a long way. It is&nbsp;portable, though it looks a little big to me,&nbsp;and it can run on it's own rechargable battery for approximately 7hrs, and&nbsp;connects to your mobile devices via bluetooth. Pricing is expected to be $200 and available from Radioshack and Altec's own website.</p>
