It’s white, it looks like it belongs in the interior of a space station, flies and pumps tunes ai??i?? meet the new LG PJ9, a levitating Bluetooth speaker that the company will be showing at CES in Las Vegas next week.

Featuring two passive radiators for a better balanced sound, the PJ9 boasts a 10-hour battery life and gets propped up in the air via magnetic force.
