The Mark I was very much a device for makers and open source developers. The Mark II is a consumer-ready speaker designed for you and your family, whatever your level of technical expertise. But at the same time, it is open hardware and software for you developers, makers and hackers.
It has state of the art features like array microphones, beam-forming, active noise cancellation, and a bright screen to display important information. It also sounds great, filling your room with vivid highs and deep lows.
