You can never have enough Android exclusive gear. And at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Android products can be found everywhere.

Just before CES 2015 kicked off this year, Zettaly unveiled the prototype of their Android-exclusive smart speaker, Avy. Currently, the product is in the early stages of a Kickstarter campaign; they’ve reached $20,260 out of their total $50,000 funding goal, and there are 37 days left to go.

During their Kickstarter campaign, interested parties can snag an Avy at early-bird special pricing of $99. If you wait until May, when they’re scheduled to release, it could cost around $169 for Avy.

The Zettaly Avy fuses the worlds of rich sound with intuitive touch controls, as the internet-connected speaker is powered entirely by Android and features a large, 7 inch touchscreen sandwiched between the speaker units. What that means for users is that they’ll have access to anything they might access on any other Android device like movies, music, games, shows, and apps.

Under the hood users will see that Avy is rocking a quad-core ARM 1.0 GHz, 3D acceleration, 1080P en/decoding processor as well as 1 GB of DDRIII RAM. It also features on board storage in either 8 or 32 GB, but users can also take advantage of expandable memory capabilities up to 32GB. All of these specs will ensure you get the most out of the hot, new Android Lollipop OS.

If they hit their funding goals on time, Zettaly will use the funds to ensure that shipment begins on schedule in May after a polished bout of post-production. If you’re interested in checking out the system for yourself at CES 2015 make sure to swing by Sands 75550.
