I stumbled across these odd looking audio speakers online today.
The O'hEocha Audiophile's Speakers, which are produced in Ireland and were imagined by a BMW designer, stand 3 1/2 ft. and are crafted from aircraft aluminum. They look not so much like speakers as they do tripods from "The War of the Worlds." They run about $9,000 and are currently sold out.

Then again, perhaps these speakers aren't quite as menacing as a "real" martian tripod that currently menaces Woking, England.
