LG Electronics has announced its Levitating Portable Speaker, which will be launched at CES 2017.
According to LG, the wireless speaker (model PJ9) is capable of hovering in place for 10 hours at a time before descending into the Levitation Station (pictured), where it will recharge itself without disrupting any play in music.
The 360 degree omnidirectional speaker includes a turbine blade-inspired design and deep bass stemming from the subwoofer embedded inside the Levitation Station. The PJ9 also features Dual Passive Radiator technology to reproduce flush mid-range tones and crisp highs for enhanced sound quality.
The PJ9 is IPX7* compliant in order to withstand adverse weather conditions. It also offers multipoint technology, which enables the speaker to connect to two Bluetooth devices simultaneously.
"This latest addition to our growing lineup of premium wireless audio devices will not only turn heads, but it makes the bold statement that LG is committed to exploring new concepts and pioneering innovative audio designs for consumers around the world," said Tim Alessi, head of product marketing at LG Electronics.
LG will be showing at the Las Vegas Convention Center (Booth #11100, Central Hall) during CES 2017 in January.
* The LG PJ9 Portable Levitating Speaker has a water resistance rating of IPX7 according to IEC standard 60529 (applies to speaker only, not base unit).
