An industrial design firm would do well to hire the folks responsible for the Quasar 12-sided speaker. Because of its groovy shape, the speaker can blast sound toward all 360 degrees.
Assuming they don’t sound like mud, I wouldn’t mind seeing them going straight into mass production. Of course, devices that are actually released often stink in comparison to these concepts.
Hats off to the designers.
