CES 2015: Bluetooth’s Air2 Speaker Plays Music While Levitating

Popular Science (Jan. 9, 2015) — Sure, your speakers may have good sound quality, but can they float? Bluetooth’s Air2 speaker set lets you listen to your favorite Bruno Mars song (or Taylor Swift, if that’s what you’re into) and marvel at magnetic levitation at the same time. The speaker and base combo are fitted with magnets that repel one another, causing the Air2 to levitate slightly off the metal base. On the flip side, the portable speaker also can stick to your magnetic fridge, in case flying speakers are just too much for you. Video provided by Popular Science
