Some seriously cool-looking speakers

And they don't need a power cord!

LaCie

These LaCie speakers might look like pieces of futuristic white pipe, or the elbow joints of a Stormtrooper costume from Star Wars, but they're actually a cool, design-savvy sound solution that cleans up clutter. They aren't totally wireless, but they come close. Since they connect to your computer via its FireWire port, they don't require an external power source. That means you'll have a free outlet for plugging in your lava lamp night light .

And get this: They're $79 for a set of two. Sure, you can get lower-end speakers for a lot less, but if these actually project decent sound, and they look this good, that's a pretty appealing price.
