Speakers that call from the high seas

A system that's built like a sailboat.

Nexspeaker

For some reason that we've yet to fathom, people seem to have a fascination with speakers in water--on the surface , underneath and with some unfortunate designs . But the Korean company Nexspeaker has taken the concept even further: with a speaker system that's shaped like a sailboat.

This 2.1-channel system pipes sound through its speaker sails, according to Gizmodo, and even has a subwoofer on deck. Alas, it doesn't appear to be an actual seagoing vessel. But that might be a good thing, because it probably wouldn't last more than a few seconds if Craver Caroline McCarthy had one of her pirate ships on the prowl.
