We’ve seen levitating pens, levitating, lamps, and even levitating fish….now there’s a Bluetooth speaker to add to the list. It floats, it’s a sphere, and it plays music. What else could you ask for? The Om/One speaker prototype defies gravity while playing your favorite tunes.
It looks like something out of a Star Wars movie. This speaker will sure wow you with its design. This product was created by a team in Oakland, California. The speaker levitates about an inch off its base, spinning around in mid-air while you listen to the audio. The device also contains a microphone which allow you to take calls too. It has a hidden sensor that allows you to turn the device on and off as well as pair it with your audio source such as a smartphone. You can grab the sphere and take it with you as a portable speaker when you’re on the go. Once the final version is out it is expected to have a battery life of up to fifteen hours, which is impressive even without the floating trick.
There are many Bluetooth speakers out in market so you ask yourself what’s so special about this one? The company says they are not trying to compete with any other products instead they want to set its own market based on their cool sci-fi-style floating stunt.
Om/Audio, makers of products such as the Inearpeace earphones and mantra speaker have take a leap into the world of novelty products with the Om/One. The levitating speaker will cost you a hefty $179 but if you’re having a dance party, it sure will be the talk of the town.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XCfhdmC7oMY
