It borrows its design from the Japanese company's popular wall hanging CD player, but Muji's new mountable Bluetooth speaker is far more useful in this day and age. And a lot cheaper too, coming in at around $95.

With just two watts of power it's not going to keep a house party rocking into the wee hours of the morning, but that's more than enough for some nice background music at a dinner party. And when you're tired of streaming what's on your phone or tablet, it's even got an FM radio for soaking up some local culture. A simple tug of the speaker's power cord turns it on and off, and as with most Bluetooth hardware your device only needs to be within about 30 feet to maintain its wireless connection.

And if you're worried that it doesn't make enough of a statement, remember that speakers are to be heard, not seen.
