Fostex Gy-1 Speaker Throws 360-Degree Sound

Designed for use with portable media players and computers, this compact speaker from Fostex cranks reflects its sound waves all around you.

Fostex GY-1 Multimedia Speaker

The Fostex GY-1 amplified speaker has a unique case design that looks kind of like the tip of a missile. By forcing sound downward against a tabletop, the speaker radiates a 360-degree soundfield so you don’t need multiple speakers. The cool blue LED glow coming from under the speaker makes it look like it’s floating on your table top. If you don’t care for the clean white finish, it’s also available in in black and matte silver styles too.

The GY-1 speaker is currently available from Amazon Japan for about ¥12,638 (about $106 USD,) but no release date has been set for other countries yet.
