Star Wars fighters morph into speakers

Tie Fighters are part of Nikko sound system

Engadget

It's not enough for Star Wars memorabilia to launch a ground attack . Now they're coming at us by air too.

The assault of data-repelling gadgets from the monster franchise continues unabated, with the latest being a set of Tie Fighter speakers spotted by Engadget. The pair is made by Nikko, whose R2-D2 Webcam was a big hit at CES earlier this year. We wouldn't have recognized the speakers as Ties, were it not for the Star Wars logo on the subwoofer. But that, come to think of it, is actually a good thing.
