If you are thinking of getting a portable speaker, why not buy one that can levitate and play music at the same time. To be showcased at CES 2017, this LG Levitating Portable Speaker (PJ9) is definitely an eye candy. Together with its Levitation Station, it can play music while floating in the air for 10 hours.
That is not all. When battery is low, it will lower itself down to the station to be charged wirelessly. The Levitation Station also acts as a subwoofer ensuring that the bass can be heard nicely.
And the best part is that you can bring the portable speaker outside in adverse weather condition (It is IPX7 compliant). Check out the Press Release for more details.
LG’S LEVITATING SPEAKER EXPECTED TO MESMERIZE AUDIENCE AT CES 2017
LG Levitating Portable Speaker Hovers Magically in Midair While Delivering Great Audio Performance
SEOUL, December 27, 2016 — LG Electronics (LG) is showcasing its futuristic Levitating Portable Speaker (model PJ9) at CES® 2017, the proving ground for exciting technology from across the electronics industry. The mesmerizing wireless speaker hovers in place over the accompanying Levitation Station to deliver high-quality audio while making quite an impression with its eye-catching design. In addition to its striking looks, the versatile speaker gives users the ability to seamlessly play music, podcasts and other audio content in the home as well as outdoors.
The PJ9 creates its stunning visual effect using powerful electromagnets housed inside the Levitation Station to give the speaker its unique trait of being untouched by any surface or wires when playing. At the core is a 360–degree omnidirectional speaker with turbine blade-inspired design and deep bass courtesy of the subwoofer embedded inside the Levitation Station. The PJ9 also features Dual Passive Radiator technology to reproduce flush mid-range tones and crisp highs.
When its 10-hour battery begins to run low, the smart portable speaker automatically descends to the Levitation Station and begins to charge wirelessly with no intervention from the listener and no interruption in the music. The PJ9 is IPX7 compliant in order to withstand any adverse weather condition when being used outdoors. For added convenience and versatility, Multipoint technology enables the speaker to connect to two Bluetooth devices simultaneously.
“Our latest addition to our growing lineup of premium wireless audio devices is not only eye-catching but also communicates the message that LG is serious about bringing something different to the table,” said Brian Kwon, president and CEO of LG’s Home Entertainment Company. “We are absolutely dedicated to exploring new concepts and to pioneering innovative designs for its advanced audio products for consumers around the world, and the PJ9 is the latest example of this commitment.”
Visitors to CES are encouraged to come to LG’s stand at the Las Vegas Convention Center (Booth #11100, Central Hall) to see the company’s full lineup of wireless audio products.
