Designed to look like a Nikon 55-200mm telephoto lens, the device is actually a portable speaker. Instead of the typical glass optical elements, the gadget sports a speaker driver. It's also capable of playing music from various audio sources such as smartphones, computers, and other devices with a 3.5mm stereo minijack.
