    Here's a uniquely cool accessory for your music listening needs. It's a levitating Bluetooth speaker called the OM/One, and although it's obviously a novelty device, it aims to be utilitarian too. Here are a few details about this slick looking idea,
    • The compact sphere of the OM/One is meant to be a portable device, as it can also be used without its magnetic base (which requires an AC adapter)
    • It includes an integrated battery designed for up to 15 hours of continuous play
    • The OM/One also includes an onboard microphone so it can be used as a speakerphone as well
    • Will come in white, black, or Disco Ball designs
    Along with these cool features, the levitating action of the speaker is supposedly help create better audio with a lower-power driver, since nearby objects won't absorb sound.

    It's price is a bit steep for a Bluetooth speaker, but when you consider the "cool factor" of the levitating tech included, the $179.99 may not be too steep.

    Not sure how stereo sound will go over with that when the speakers are constantly rotating, unless it's setup to shift the sound as it turns. Cool gift for the techie who has everything.
