The best tech products blend into their surroundings instead of standing out. Available for the first time in the US, Sony's LSPX-S2 Glass Sound Speaker is a perfect example. It ditches the mesh coverings synonymous with modern smart speakers and instead adopts a vintage lantern aesthetic, with built-in illumination offering 32 levels of brightness and a flickering "candlelight mode". The body houses a 35mm driver and passive radiator for full sound, while the glass tube acts as a tweeter for 360º coverage. It supports Bluetooth and NFC for quick pairing, can run for up to 8 hours per charge, and can pair with another unit for stereo separation.
