Despite their bowling ball looks, Elipson's Planet speakers are smarter than your average pair of cans. Developed in partnership with Parrot, they have built-in Bluetooth 2.0 and can automatically detect and pair with one another when switched on. They have digital and analog connections and support A2DP Bluetooth devices, so they can stream wirelessly from your computer or even your mobile. I've always been skeptical about wireless speakers, but for $1,316 I'd hope these sound as good as they look.

These things support the SBC Bluetooth audio codec for NEAR CD quality sound with only 72dB dynamic range and the maximum supported MP3 bit rate is 192kbps. So for $1300USD you get to listen to, at best, poorly detailed music with limited dynamic range. But, hey it's WIRELESS and better yet BLUETOOTH!

I'm going to use Bluetooth to eliminate that oh-so-annoying wire between the handle and the float ball in my toilet right after I buy these babies...
