Innovative Bluetooth Speaker Floats in Mid-Air to Prevent Audio Distortion

It's common to see audio speakers that are sitting on a desk or attached to a wall for surround sound. OM Audio's OM/ONE breaks away from such conventions, however, and looks positively futuristic. It has a very distinctive attribute – it floats! The innovative product features a 3.6 inch levitating driver (about the size of a tennis ball) that hovers above its base at a height of about 1.2 inches thanks to an electromagnet. The “isolation” style speaker means that it will prevent audio distortion because it's separated from its stand and won't have anything blocking the waves.

In addition to this eye-catching feature, the rechargeable OM/ONE connects wirelessly to mobile devices and computers using Bluetooth, and has a range of up to 33 feet. It can be used in pairs for stereo sound, and each unit is capable of producing 100 decibels for up to 15 hours of playback. The OM/ONE is easily transportable, meaning that you can take your music anywhere.

Are you eager to own this speaker? If so, it's currently available for pre-order via Tilt, a crowdfunding platform.
