Taking a page from Altec Lansing’s latest line of spaceman-like speakers, designer Nuno Teixeira’s mock-up looks sort of like the tiki torches of tomorrow. The Omni system’s two speakers each have a subwoofer at the bottom, mid-range speakers in the middle and tweeters on top. Ceramic plating separates each frequency range, and all the sound is projected through upward-facing cones on top. As a bonus, it’s possible to stare deeply into the Omni’s soul to see a heart of pure evil. Or perhaps that’s just the plating. Hope, fruitlessly, that Altec Lansing picks this one up.
