Japanese design company Nendo have created a wireless speaker shaped like a bird cage. Called Music Cage, the speakers can play music from a computer over a wireless connection or from a bluetooth enabled mobile phone and is available in black or white. Unit can be either stuck on a table or suspended from the ceiling. No word yet on the quality of the sound.
Designer Joey Roth's Ceramic Speakers boast only 10 watts of output per channel, though each 4-inch full-range driver is housed in an acoustically dead porcelain and cork chamber that should do quite a lot with quite a little. Made from porcelain, wood and cork, Roth chose the materials not only for the aesthetic appeal they add to desktops, but also because porcelain's density and "acoustical deadness" rivals that of wood or plastic enabling the cone shape. Due out in October, Roth will be accepting pre-orders via his site starting September. No official word on pricing yet, but Roth expects they will be in the $400-500 range.
