The Van Der Waals ferromagnetic speaker isn't just a treat for the ears, its innovative display makes it visually mesmerizing as well.

While the speaker is playing audio, the ferrofluid changes depending on the current EQ visualization of the waveform.

What is ferrofluid?

NASA initially used ferrofluid to control fuel in rocketships in zero gravity environments. Its use in this speaker plays homage to its roots, looking like it came straight off an alien planet.
