Inspired by turbine blades, the LG Levitating Portable Speaker spins some cool tunes

The Levitating Portable Speaker uses electromagnets to float the PJ9 magically in mid-air. To be sure, the LG LPS isn't the first floating speaker in town, but it caught our eye with its beautiful, turbine blade-inspired design. When it spins, the white speaker brings to mind airplane motors and lifting off the ground.

When it comes to audio quality, the PJ9 boasts a 360-degree omnidirectional speaker with Dual Passive Radiator Technology for mid-range and high tones, and the Station is a subwoofer for deep bass.

When the PJ9’s 10-hour battery runs low, the speaker automatically descends to the Levitation Station and starts to charge wirelessly, with no interruption to audio playback. Once fully charged, it floats back up to the air again.

The PJ9 wireless speaker is IPX7 compliant, which means it can withstand being immersed in water up to 1m in depth for up to 30 minutes, so you can bring it outdoors and not worry if it rains. The ability to connect with two Bluetooth devices at the same time makes it easier to share music.

There's no definitive launch date and price yet.
