AC Worldwide, the company that brought the Star Wars speakers (Storm Trooper/ Darth Vader) and Master Chief has today announced the launch of its Kickstarter campaign for the fully licensed polished alloy Terminator T-800 Endoskeleton multimedia Speaker, with built in Camera and Alexa functionality.
The Terminator T-800 Endoskeleton speaker is an exact, polished alloy replica of the droid created for the T1 movie, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. Designed with remarkable attention to detail, the T-800 boasts high-quality audio with powerful bass, glowing red eye sockets with a motion detecting camera in its left eye, cloud storage and voice-control using the built-in Alexa feature.
Standing 45cm (18 inches) tall, this is one of the largest reproductions of the Endoskeleton skull ever produced.
The addition of the glowing red camera in the left eye gives the speaker a further true likeness of the movie character. The camera serves two functions: security and fun. If you’re not at home and the camera’s motion sensors are triggered, you can view what the camera is seeing in real-time via the AC Worldwide T-800 mobile application – allowing you to see what’s going on in your home. With a year’s free cloud recording, your videos are backed up, for playback whenever you wish. Equally, choose to use the app (iOS and Android) in live view to see what is going on at any given time.
This is so much more than an audio speaker, with a built in Intelligent Personal Assistant (IPA) from Amazon Alexa, this speaker will become your go to device for all questions. Simply ask it for the day’s weather forecast, or the latest news, or even use it for the children homework questions. Simply ask and Alexa will deliver the answers through your T-800 speaker.
The Terminator T-800 Endoskeleton speaker is available on Kickstarter with pledges starting as low as £5 / $6 for a support mention on the product page. Running for the initial seven days is the exclusive early bird pledge, for £275 / $300 you will receive a first batch Terminator T-800 speaker with certificate of authenticity and gift box. There are more exclusive one-off pledges available for those wishing to own this unique speaker, including serial number 101 (which was the T-800’s serial number in the movies), a personalised speaker with your name on, or the special limited edition ultimate ‘white gold’ unit.

AC Worldwide’s founder Karl Grimsey said, “We are truly very excited to have the opportunity to bring the T-800 to life, with a fully licenced replica – if you’re a Terminator fan you’re going to love this. While the project is technically challenging and loaded with features, we have a solid track record of delivery. Of course, we know that this will resonate with fans of the Terminator movies, but we also hope it will be of interest to a broader group of sci-fi, design and technology lovers. We hope that everyone will help support the Kickstarter campaign so that we can bring this ‘menacingly beautiful’ speaker and camera system to the market.”
