Incredible Floating Bluetooth Speaker

While we still await the dawn of flying cars, hoverboards and jet packs, the techno geniuses have finally come through with a legitimate (if pointless) levitating gadget - the OM/One floating speaker.

In an increasingly noisy Bluetooth speaker market, OM Audio have taken a gimmicky route to getting your attention: The speaker unit is housed within a small orb a little larger than a tennis ball. With 4.0 Bluetooth (it'll connect to just about any device you own and allow two speakers to connect for stereo sound), an inbuilt microphone for conference calls and a 14 hour battery life, the OM/One is much like any other portable speaker. It's only when you partner it with its base unit that it comes into its own.

An electro magnet in the base - which doubles as a wireless charger - repels the orb speaker, allowing it to spin and hover elegantly 1.2" above the base.

Will it improve the sound quality of your music? Probably not. Does it change the way you'll go about listening to your favourite albums? No. Is it a spectacle that will entertain and amuse mates at your next house party? Almost certainly.

Currently smashing its crowd-sourced funding target on Tilt, you can order an OM/One for around £110.
