Sony debuts tubular, non-directional speaker

6 10 2007

Finally, Sony is striving to incorporate its technology into our “everything everywhere” lifestyles with a stereo speaker that matches our fast-paced, Jetsons-esque, 21st century “chill sessions.” What are we talking about? Mainly, the company’s new non-directional speaker prototype, a thin, tall, acrylic tube with a woofer at the bottom, a mid range “unit” at the top, and a tweeter created through the use of the vibrating, resin cylinder. Apparently, the speaker is capable of projecting sound in a omnidirectional fashion due to it’s circular shape and unique speaker placement, though there’s no telling how accurately it reproduces Mastodon’s harmonized guitars. The speaker is self-powered (i.e., active), and as far as we know, Sony has no immediate plans for release.
