Sound system or mechanical mollusk?

The latest speakers from Mobius look like one-eyed robotic snails.

If we didn't know what these were, we might have thought they were the latest of WowWee's creepy creations. They look like some kind of one-eyed robotic mollusks.

But the "Mobius MKII" are high-end loudspeakers (defined by a projected price range of $10,000 to $15,000) that are as imposing in size and features as they are in cost. Standing well over 3 feet tall, each speaker has four drivers housed in an 8-inch "bipolar array" perched on top like a spherical beacon, according to Audio Junkies.

They're expected to be released next spring, at which time we anticipate an intergalactic clash with some other alien sound systems.
