Levitating speaker adds elegance to sci-fi design

First, they were portable. Then they became wireless. Now, your home speakers have evolved to levitation. While the Om/One that we covered back in August infused bluetooth with its floating capabilities, Mars purports to be the first levitating speaker to include a subwoofer. This makes for yet another development of sound systems designed to blend discreetly into the home environment and disapper (quite literally) “into thin air.”

Designed by firm CrazyBaby, Mars is a high quality, 1.75-inch full-range speaker system that uses Gravitron technology to suspend a convex-shaped speaker above its base. Though not the first levitating speaker, Mars is the first system to include a subwoofer, thereby offering high-quality projection for the full range of audio frequencies, from 80Hz ~ 21kHz. The speaker’s 4.5-inch subwoofer and 10,000 powerbank are hidden in its rectangular base.
