Known for capturing the contemporary and reinventing luxury, the Bang & Olufsen Edge is the latest eccentricity that fits squarely in their wheelhouse.
The white-glove audio manufacturer unveiled its latest eccentricity at IFA 2018 in Berlin - showcasing a 28.7-pound circular speaker that can be mounted on the wall and use a rocking motion to control the sound.
Yes, B&O encouraged passerby's on the show floor to stress test the $3,500 speaker, showing that it is sturdy as it is beautiful. And for however cautious people were, the Bang & Olufsen representatives assured you that it was nearly impossible to take it off the wall. The magic behind the tilting speaker is actually pretty simple, an accelerometer and gyroscope determine how fast to change the volume based. Essentially a bigger push will result in a greater change and the speaker can pick up on that.
