Sony Soutina - can you guess what it is

Upon first seeing this product, my first guess was that it was a modern light saber for Star Wars fans and the second guess was that it was a strange new lamp. I apparently seriously bite at guessing games, because a speaker is the last thing I would have guessed.

This gorgeous speaker from Sony uses transparent organic glass to make up the tubing which vibrates and expands the sound to 360 degrees. The Soutina speaker has a frequency response of 50Hz – 20,000Hz.

Unfortunately you probably could have guessed from first glance that this was not a cheap speaker. Even before you knew it was a speaker, it is quite obviously not cheap. It is being sold for $10,200.
