Last Gadget Standing Nominee: Acousticom Sound Egg
If your name is Maxwell Smart or you’re an urban dweller who can never escape ambient noise, the Sound Egg is a sound investment. The 70’s style egg chair has been reworked as an audio cocoon, First seen at CES 2010, The Egg lets you immerse yourself in 5.1 Surround Sound without disturbing the people around you. It plays movies, music, video games, and any other media source through its array of speakers, including a 10″ subwoofer. The chair is molded from colored foam. At $1450, it’s a lot to pay for your own private world of sound, but for some, it may be worth it.
