The new Parrot wireless speakers were finally unveiled yesterday after an impatient wait by gadget geeks. Designed by Phiippe Starck, Zikmu is a wireless speaker that features a dock for iPods and iPhones.
The speakers connect via Bluetooth and are capable of 360 degree surround sound. Standing at 2.5 feet, the speakers are ideal for listening to music while lounging comfortably. Designer Starck claims that the 3D feel of the vibration caused by the speakers will be palpable to the user giving it a humanlike presence. Even if this is a bizarre exaggerartion, the speakers are certainly uber cool in design.
Available from the spring of 2009, the Zikmu wireless speakers will cost you $1,500, inclusive of a remote control. The speakers will also recharge the iPod/iPhone but the price still seems grossly expensive.
