OM/ONE Bluetooth Levitating Speaker Orb Will Hit The Market Soon
Music fans and technology junkies love regular Bluetooth speakers, but in 2015 functionality is not enough to sell. OM/ONE is a Bluetooth speaker that works like any other such device. However, it also has something special: it can levitate above its base.
The Speaker That Defies Gravity
This device that defies gravity consists of a base and a round speaker that magically levitates while spinning in a gentle manner. Users can keep the magnetic base on their nightstands, for example, and simply grab the floating Bluetooth speaker when they want to move around and have a wireless speaker with them.
This impressive gadget also has a microphone built in, so it can be used to take calls and conduct conversations over the phone. Battery life expectancy is high as well for such a small and high-tech device; between 12 and 15 hours depending on the type of use.
