We have imagined wireless, and today its all true. Now its time to go further… levitation.
Imagine playing your music on a speaker that isn’t even touching the earth. And then, imagine it to rotate 360 degrees for full surround sound. That’s what levitating speakers will give you.
There are no levitating speakers in stores yet, but here are the future two: the Om/One and Mars. Both levitate using high performance magnets (or electromagnets), and use the latest Bluetooth 4.0 to stream high quality audio from your phone. And the best thing: both are coming in mid-2015 and cost under Rs. 15,000 (the price you would pay for any great full size bluetooth speaker).
So lets get to each of them individually…
1. Om/One: The world’s first levitating speakers. Let's have a look at their video:
The Om/One is a great looking piece… The speaker “orb” looks really cool, with multidirectional output. Plus, the base glows the “Om” symbol (the company logo) in blue. The speaker provides an amazing battery life of 12 hours, much more than comparable speakers of its size. I expect it to sound pretty good as well, through the finely tuned 75mm driver. Adding to all this, it has an inbuilt microphone as well.
Its available for preorder on their website starting at $199. Shipping starts January 2015.
Mars auto-levitates the disk, or the “horn” using patented Gravitron Levitation Technology. Its built using aircraft grade aluminium so its super tough and waterproof. The horn rotates, creating a 360 degree sound, similar to the Om/One. The speaker dictates proximity of the person listening to the audio and automatically adjusts volume accordingly. That is really cool! And the apt-X technology promises amazing sound quality. The speaker is said to last for 8 hours. It has a sensitive built in microphone, and the base, containing the woofer has 2 USB charging ports for charging your phone on the go.
The speaker would cost $199 but you can get it at a cheaper price at their Indiegogo campaign page (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/mars-by-crazybaby-a-levitating-bluetooth-speaker).
2. Mars: The world’s first levitating speakers with a subwoofer and Hi-Fi sound. Mars is a beautifully designed speaker. Its much more advanced compared to the Om/One.
Let’s watch the video:
Both the speakers display the possibilities of great looking and working bluetooth speakers. Finally, great sounding speakers come in innovative packages!
