Float / Bluetooth Speaker


Float is a new type of Bluetooth speaker, which changes the traditional way of interaction between human and speaker. Unlike traditional Bluetooth speaker, the switch of Float is a magnetic levitation system. When the user presses the Float switch, the "switch" will be suspended by itself, which can give users a new and fantastic feeling. In the process of playing music, the magnetic suspension switch and the magnetic diaphragm above the Float will vibrate up and down with the melody of the music. Float can give users both auditory and visual enjoyment. Users can “see the music”.
