I've seen one of these in real life, although it was in a very noisy environment so I can't make any comment on the sound quality.

 

Salesman: It's suprisingly stable.
Me: *Gives it a poke*
Device: *Drops like a stone and gets stuck to the magnetic base*
Salesman: *Spends the next 30 seconds trying to reset it*

 

Looking back on it I can't help but laugh, but I was embarrassed at the time!

I've seen them in JB Hi Fi. Can't remember how they sounded though but certainly look the business!

I expect they don't sound too good but who cares? Death star! Levitating!

 

The cat would probably deal to it though.

They take quite a bit of practice to get it levitating...

 

Sadly it does not fire death rays / destroy planets. I suppose the warnings and disclaimers would have been a little tough to print out?

The biggest issue I see is that you have to charge the Death Star speaker before you place it on the "levitation " pad

Now if ithe pad could both float and wirelessly power the speaker that would be seriously cool

Lack of being able to run constantly off wall power makes it of no interest to me. Anything that small sounds terrible so its just for the effect of it doing things that you own one.
