In today's market, there are plenty of home audio solutions. There's even more that let you plug in your iPod Touch or iPhone. Basically, they're all over the place. And, while we can't say anything really bad about them, because they work just fine (for the most part), we can say that most of them look relatively similar to the other one. Here's the solution to that problem: snowflake speakers.
As different as a snowflake should be, these speakers definitely stand out. Even if they didn't light up, which they do, they'd still attract an eye or two while they sat on your table, or desk at your house. Thanks to designer Sylvain Gerber, we get to see what it would look like if a snowflake went all industrial on us, and sprouted a port for your iPhone.
The speakers feature the latest in integrated flat membrane audio equipment, so that all of the necessary parts are shoved into the bottom of the speaker. The wiring is illuminated by different colors, as you can see, and extend through the appendages of the snowflake. The iPod Touch or iPhone sits right there in front, and then you jam out. No word on whether or not these will be coming to the market, ever, but we've got our fingers crossed.
