What’s better than a Bluetooth speaker? One that levitates
Just when you thought there were too many Bluetooth speakers on the market, and that they all seem to do the same thing, a new comes along that attempts to break the mold. Well, in this case, defy gravity.
The Om/One is a gravity-defying Bluetooth speaker that consists of a magnetic base and a round speaker. The most interesting aspect about the Om/One is that the round speaker levitates above the magentic base, spinning whimsically to whatever sounds are playing. You can remove the round speaker from its position in the air and use it as a portable speaker, if you desire, or you can leave it alone to spin and play. It also includes a microphone for phone conversations.
A company called Om Audio, which makes another speaker line called Mantra, has developed prototypes of the Om/One and even started a crowdfunding campaign in order to embark on the producton process for Om/One. The campaign launched on 12 August and has a modest $100,000 goal. With only 49 days left before the campaign ends, Om Audio already raised half of the money it needs.
You can back Om Audio by preordering the Om/One, starting now. The $179 speaker is available in three colors (black, white, and disco). The disco edition, which of course resembles a disco ball, will cost you a $299 pledge however. Delivery is estimated to be in December of this year, and Om Audio emphasised that battery life of the final version should be around 15 hours.
Sure...there are more affordable Bluetooth speakers available, but Om/One is the only speaker that can both float and amplify your tunes.
