Ever feel overwhelmed by the sheer amount of usable surface area in your house? Ever wish that your Bluetooth speaker was fluffier? Do you ever long for a future in which all your music is accompanied by perfectly timed light flashes. Is the gentle passing of a cumulus cloud across a bright blue sky the only thing that will keep the voices at bay? We might have the speaker for you.
Joking aside the effect is pretty cool. It’s a standard levitation doohickey at it core. While we don’t know what the inside looks like exactly, we can take our guesses. The cloud has some magnets and a coil for receiving power. Inside is a hacked apart Bluetooth speaker, a microcontroller, and some LEDs. It’s all surrounded by fluffy white pillow stuffing and hot glue.
The base has a power supply and a rechargeable battery. We’re not sure why, we suppose it’s a pain to reset the floaty cloud. It’s certainly not portable. If you’d like one, it can probably be replicated with a few challenging weekends of work. The other option is to wait, as they claim to be pursuing a commercial something or another. Which these days means they’re gonna file for a patent on something everyone and their grandmother has done and then sell it as a six thousand dollar desk ornament. Still! Pretty cool. Video after the break.

Now, thats a cloudservice I would use, playing music from the cloud!
The big brain am winning again! I am the greetest! Now I am leaving Earth for no raisin!
Thank you for that quote! And I agree, a floating brain would be awesome.
A singing cauliflower, how delightful!
Haha. It totally looks like one now that you point it out!
Fuzzy blurtooth. Pure gimick, not good for anything but beeps and notifications.
Feel free to put in a Wifi module instead. But I suspect it’s probably the speaker itself that’s going to limit quality.
It needs to generate some real high voltage lightning!
Couple it with a tesla coil, you’ll have your lightning loll
Shape it like a brain. Who wouldn’t want a floating, blinking brain in their livingroom?
Now I want a floating brain in a jar bluetooth speaker.
I see an interesting dust collector…
Too dense for a cloud, it’s more like a original star-trek style floating brain. But that could work if you run siri or some such over its Bluetooth.
Will it make wagers in quatloos?
