LG PJ9 Levitating Speaker

It is a scientific fact that any electronic device can be made better through magnetic levitation. Lost in the hype of LG’s magnificent OLED TV, LG’s new line of mini speakers are gorgeously designed, and depending on the model, are Bluetooth only (P3), include an FM radio (P6), or come with a subwoofer base (dubbed the Levitation Station). The latter causes the mini speaker to magically hover in the air, presumably eliminating vibration along the way. It’s a bit of a party trick, sure — they dip and lower when the battery runs down, and then charge automatically via induction — but in a demo it was suitably powerful for a mini speaker. And the entire line is IPS7 waterproof. Sometimes form can rival function. [lgnewsroom.com]
