Firebox is currently offering the Stripy Speakers, a miniature speaker set with a rare level of flexibility. Both satellites can twist to change the direction of their sound without changing position, including directly upwards, Firebox says. The polished aluminum speakers are also controlled through a minimialist central dial: tapping the dome inside toggles the dial between bass, treble, and volume. The dome changes colors to reflect its new settings and will also turn red when the system is muted. The speakers are compatible with any 3.5mm minijack source such as a computer or iPod and can be imported from Firebox for $95.
