Having previously released a number of Big Blue family wireless Bluetooth speakers, Brookstone used the 2013 CES to unveil a new model called Big Blue Go, as well as the unique Lilliputian Nectar charging solution. It also showed early sketches of Big Blue Party, an indoor/outdoor portable unit with weather resistance, planned for release late this year.

    Big Blue Go (~$129) continues the industrial design of the earlier Big Blue speakers, this time with a form factor designed to move between a car's visor and a desktop. Packed with stereo speakers, a microphone, and a rechargeable battery, Big Blue Go is atypically thick for a visor speaker, enabling it to serve as a capable music player or speakerphone wherever you may want to use it. A metal clip is on the back for visor mounting.

    The Nectar charger ($300) uses a $10 disposable liquid fuel cartridge to provide up to two weeks of power for a rechargeable device on the go. Travelers can load up on the cartridges, go camping or on extended trips, and keep refueling their devices using integrated USB ports. While the price of the charger is high, the company feels that the convenience factor will compel business users in particular to give it serious consideration.

Do you have any idea when this baby monitor will be available in stores?  Also, did you happen to get any other photos, perhaps any marketing with a picture of a baby on it?  My daughter ‘modeled” for this product and I have yet to locate it anywhere!  Thanks for your help!
