If you love both prominent political figures and rocking out to sweet tunes, we may have the speakers for you. Sound of Power has released a new line of porcelain-bust speakers for computers, smartphones, and tablets, modeling them after presidents and dictators.
The lineup consists of five political figures: Barack Obama, Vladimir Putin, Robert Mugabe, Muammar al-Gaddafi, and even Kim Jung-un. Whichever head you choose, you'll find that Sound of Power has sliced off a piece of it to house the single speaker, and each order is signed by artist Petro Wodkins.
The busts are available in three sizes: a 10-inch model for around $1,200; a 1-foot-10-inch model for $3,900; and a model that's almost 4 feet tall for just under $40,000. Sorry audiophiles, those prices are for a single speaker, so you'll get the same monophonic sound as in most Bluetooth speakers.
Of course if vanity is your thing, you can have Sound of Power customize a bust to look just like you, a family member, or even a pet. The team uses 3D modeling to capture a 3D image of your head, which they'll use to build a white porcelain or 24-karat-gold speaker version of you. This customization is available only for the 3-foot-7-inch bust, and it'll set you back about $165,000. Though for that price you get flown out to Moscow and put up at the Ritz Carlton for a few days so they can prepare your bust, and they'll deliver and install the speaker in person at your home or office.
If you just can't live without having a porcelain bust of a president, dictator, or loved one pumping out your iTunes library, head over to Sound of Power's site to preorder one for yourself.
