Not sure about the name. Perhaps UFO would have been more appropriate but either way Mars by Crazybaby, is a high fidelity waterproof Bluetooth speaker. It has an 8hr battery and can be submerged in 3ft of water. The part that looks like a flying saucer is a portable speaker and the cylinder over which it levitates is a sub-woofer. "Levitate!?" I hear you cry. Well yes...
The stand out feature is that the speak actually floats in the air like some extraterrestrial anti-gravity alien object from a sci-fi movie. As well as being very cool, the makers designed it this way to enable sound is projected in every direction, unlike conventional speakers that can only project it in one direction. This is ideal for parties and conference calls (it has Bluetooth pairing and a mic).
It is constructed with industrial 'aircraft-grade' aluminium so it's built to not only look good but last. Another nice feature is the proximity volume which adjusts by playing louder as the listener moves away.
Crazybaby have smashed their campaign target, so head over to Indiegogo and pre-order your very own musical martian. The early bird discount is $149 (£95) with a RRP of $199 (£130).
