Louis Vuitton's New Speaker Lights Up Like a UFO

From the Robb Report:

The French luxury house has just debuted its newest audio device, the Horizon Light Up speaker.

The Bluetooth-enabled device, which resembles a spinning top (or a very stylish UFO) connects to Apple products through AirPlay and Qplay devices via WiFi.

Designed by Nicolas Ghesquiere, Louis Vuitton's artistic director of women's collections, the speaker draws inspiration from the brand's playful Toupie handbag.

The device is bound in leather with metal components and decorated with the brand's well-known monogram.

When music is playing, the woofer vibrates while a dynamic light show synchronizes to the beat of the music, displaying a colorful, animated rendition of the brand's well-known monogram on the device's top ring.

The speaker's steel middle band features cut-out letters of the brand's name that glow to match the top ring.

You can control all of this through the dedicated Louis Vuitton Connect app, which helps users create vibrant color combinations, animation sequences, and change other sound and appearance settings.

Best of all, the device's design allows for sound to project 360 degrees and fill your entire space.

The Louis Vuitton Horizon Light Up speaker weighs approximately 2.2 lbs. and measures just over 7 inches in diameter.

At a full charge, the device can provide up to 15 hours of playtime.

Collectors will also find the speaker's leather strap and protective pouch useful for protecting the speaker in transit: when it's turned off, it doubles as a futuristic objet d'art.

Clever, you put the LV logo upside down on the original post. For $3k, you could outfit an entire house with Sonos! I have 12 that I bought over the last 4 years and don't think I spent that much.
