Flying cars and hover boards are something that always amaze us, but they are far-fetched ideas at the moment. However, one thing that is for the present is the levitating speaker which you could get hold of, by this Christmas.tl-horizontal_main_2x

The device has a tennis ball-sized ‘orb’ speaker that hovers over an electromagnetic base, almost at a height of 1.2 inches. The OM/ONE speaker connects to the user’s smartphone and other Bluetooth devices as it launches, allowing one to stream music from services like Spotify, Soundcloud etc. It has a range of about 33ft, and the users can change tracks and adjust volume from their device. The company, based in Oakland, California, said: ‘OM/ONE makes the impossible possible by effortlessly defying gravity. It is elegant and meticulously engineered.’ononespeaker-1020-1.0.0_cinema_1200.0 om-one-floating-bluetooth-speaker-you-never-knew-you-needed

While some might say that it’s a gimmick and of no actual use, the manufacturers state otherwise. According to the company, ‘Instead of wasting amplification energy pushing sound waves into a desk, bookshelf, or table, all of the OM/ONE’s amplification energy is directed to the speaker driver to create full, crisp and clear sound. This enables OM/ONE to deliver audio performance far beyond its size.’

The OM/ONE has a frequency range of 100 hertz and has a 3 watt amplifier and will be offering 15 hours of playback before it needs to be recharged. It is a portable device and can be used on the move. The speaker has a built-in microphone for conference calls and will support usage with PCs and tablets as well. ‘The OM/ONE orb is designed to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand and has built quality equal to the best products you already own,’ the company said.om-one-final-updated.0
