    This is a video from the University of Tokyo of scientists using four speakers to levitate and move objects in midair. Unfortunately, those objects are limited Styrofoam balls, water droplets, and other pieces of barely there. I want to see them levitate a human. Or implode ... / Continue →

    This is a video from Youtuber Brusspup of a stream of water appearing to fall to the ground in a zigzag pattern. Presumably because it's hipster water and a regular flow would be -- wait for it -- too mainstream. I'll be here all week, folks. The camera is set to match the v... / Continue →

    These are the conceptual Sneaker Speakers designed by Ray Kingston. They're Bluetooth enabled, battery powered external speakers that can be worn over a shoe. Why anybody would need music coming from their ankles is beyond me, but maybe some folks have REALLY short friends. ... / Continue →

    This is a video of DARPA's latest alien technology, a sonic fire extinguisher (just kidding, it's actually just two speakers). It puts fires out with sound. Me? I've actually seen a fire MADE with sound before. I'm serious, one time my buddy held a lighter to back of his sw... / Continue →

    This is a vest with an integrated 8-inch subwoofer. You know, because carrying a boombox around on your shoulder apparently isn't cool enough anymore. *rambles on about the good old days until you get bored and leave so I can finally strip down to the flesh and drink in peace... / Continue →

    Note: Short and worthwhile video is after the jump. Just watch it. This is a video of some guy with a 2,000-watt subwoofer under his computer desk after cranking that shit up to 11 to the Black Eyed Peas' 'Gotta Get Dat BROOM BROOM BROOM' or whatever the f*** this is. It's a... / Continue →

    Note: Possible speaker damage due to low bass, adjust volume accordingly. This is a guy shredding a phonebook WITH NOTHING BUT THE FORCE OF BASE. "It's bass, not base." Uh, I'm pretty sure bass is just some kind of fish aside, who knew music had the power to destroy? *tapes... / Continue →

    You want a t-shirt with a giant AV panel on the back? Then you're in luck, because Threadless has them for $18 ($45 for a hoodie). I have one. it's awesome. Or it was until a friend tried to plug an unapproved device (blender) into my ass while I was passed out drunk. MY S... / Continue →

    We've seen our fair share of ridiculously expensive speakers here on Geekologie, but nothing as scrapyard-fresh looking as these $263,000 Fabio Ognibeni Opere Sonore's. Admittedly, they do go with any decor, provided you live in an blacksmith's workshop. God, I'd hate to run ... / Continue →

    A guy named Gomhi (who may or may not own chickens) went and made himself some speakers out of a pair of eggshells and Hi-Vi B1S drivers. As you can see, they probably remind you of boobs. Because you're a serious pervert (no amateurs here!). Blah blah blah [insert joke abou... / Continue →

    Nokia recently held a promotion encouraging designers to make a pair of headphones inspired by their favorite song. The set above is entitled 'I'm Flying' and was (no joke) created in honor of R Kelly's "I Believe I can Fly", which I am now declaring a euphemism for peeing on ... / Continue →

    Everybody knows gold makes for quality audio cable and connectors, but how does it fare as an actual speaker exterior? Pretty freaking ugly if you ask me. But England's Gold Acoustics seems to think there's something to it, because their GA Star line of speakers come complete... / Continue →

    This is a cute commercial for European-based electronics manufacturer, Loewe. The ad was designed to highlight their "extremely realistic sound", but to me it highlighted how cool a human remote-controller would be. Sorry, what was that? Haha -- you've been muted, son! Yout... / Continue →

    Not to be outdone by yesterday's AT-AT boombox, some cat went and made an AT-AT iPod dock. Which is basically an AT-AT toy with an electronic turntable glued to the side and spray painted gold. Neat. Might be just the thing I need to add a little geeky flair to my bedroom. ... / Continue →

    The Cloud 9 by Radio Flyer is thankfully just conceptual at this time because no child, I don't care if they pick platinum boogers, deserves to ride around in such opulence. The questionable Flyer comes complete with two seats, MP3 player, speaker system, 5-point racing harnes... / Continue →

    First of all, these videos are NSFW because they're all of of some chick pleasuring a microphone. Jesus, I feel dirty just posting them. Apparently they're part of some performance piece by artist Wojciech Kosma that has something to do with, um, acoustics, and, uh, bl0wjobs.... / Continue →

    Got $110,000 burning a hole in your golden pants pocket? How about sharing the wealth with your favorite blogger? Damnit, no, not The Superficial Writer. That guy's a dick. No, not Iwatchstuff either. I was talking about yours truly, folks. Way to kick a guy in the freaki... / Continue →

    Russian artists Aristarkh Chernyshev and Alexei Shulgin made this giant trippy iPod. It's fully functional, including the giant earbuds. Why? you ask, why not? the artists reply. Ha, right, because it's freaking stupid. Jesus, it hurts to look at. This is your iPod on drugs... / Continue →

    The DJ Mobile was built by Dutch artist Olaf Mooij and looks like the lovechild of a subcompact that f***ed a rocketship. The deafening piece was inspired by a song called "God is a DJ" and the Pope-mobile. I'd prefer the bulletproof bubble myself, but I have a lot of enemies... / Continue →
