Those strange sculptures you see above are actually speakers which JVC is calling "breath spheres" (or at least that's how Google's well-versed translator interprets it), which the company says "you cannot feel the existence of" -- you also cannot buy it yet, either. The 4-inch sphere consists of eleven speakers, each covered with a "Weibull curve" diaphragm that expands and contracts (or vibrates), supposedly delivering a non-directional, natural sound field. According to Impress, JVC seems to be looking at a commercial launch sometime in the first half of 2007, though they don't appear to have given any indication of price. It's also not clear if it'll double as a Jedi training device or not -- we'll keep you informed on this latter bit, at the very least.
