First thing first, yes it truly is a levitating Bluetooth speaker. I saw it with my own eyes. It is truly cool, attractive and definitely intriguing to people and pets, as witnessed during the demo.
It doesn't stop at looks and good conversation piece. OM/ONE, which is the world’s first levitating Bluetooth speaker, packs it in sound. My eardrum nearly burst when we turned it on. It provides a crisp and clear sound and fills up the room. It's also portable and you can easily transport it from one location to another.
David DeVillez, CEO and Founder at Om Audio came up with the audio breakthroughs for hearing every high and low with no external distortion. The speaker levitates due to magnets opposing each other. It is a simple technology that has been well put together to create a new audio experience.
It's recommended to buy a pair for a true stereo sound. One speaker goes for $179. The speaker can be custom designed to your liking.
Crowd funding info page states there's an arrival date of February 2015, if you place an order now.
