We don’t often give desk accessories much thought. After all, they’re called accessories for a reason – we don’t necessarily need them.
But that doesn’t mean they’re not a welcome addition. Things like clocks, digital calendars, bluetooth speakers, and even a retro gaming console like the classic GameBoy are just some things you might think of.
What if you could get all that in one device without it looking out of place in even the most sophisticated setups? It turns out, you can – in the form of the Divoom Ditoo bluetooth speaker. But don’t let its name fool you, it’s much more than that. And right now, you can get it for S$89.99 on Amazon Singapore.
An all-in-one retro package.
At first glance, the Divoom Ditoo looks like a miniaturized version of a classic desktop, complete with its own set of mechanical keys that feel oh-so-satisfying to press. But aside from that, those who don’t know any better will just assume it’s a useless toy that people only use to make their desk setups look more ‘aesthetic’.
While you can use it for just that purpose if you’re so inclined, there’s a lot more to this little device than meets the eye.

With its 3.55-inch LED screen, you can display all sorts of things, like the time, a calendar, beautiful pixel art (which you can also customize through the Divoom Smart companion app), and it can even display the weather forecast! Additionally, with built-in nostalgic games like Tetris, it’s definitely a good way to kill time.
Here’s some ASMR for you (listen to how clear the speaker is too):
Of course, when connected to your smartphone via bluetooth, the Divoom Ditoo can even alert you of any notifications you get, even when your phone is on silent mode. You can program it to display certain social media icons so you know just where these notifications are coming from (and then choose to ignore them if you’re busy).
And if you’ve got trouble waking up in the morning, the Divoom Ditoo can even act as your own fun little alarm clock. Its 10W speakers are powerful enough to fill an entire room with an emphasis on bass and minimal distortion.
Or if you’d rather have some white noise playing in the background, the Divoom Ditoo can meet that need as well, especially when you factor in its built-in microSD card reader.
So, no – you won’t need this desk accessory. No one will, really. But that’s the beauty of it. Its main purpose is to be this quirky little object that does a bunch of things rather decently. And it’s going for a reasonable price.
In terms of colors, you’ve got a few choices: White, black, green, pink, blue, and red.
