OM/ONE - World's First Levitating Bluetooth Speaker Creates Gravity-Defying Listening Experience

OM/ONE Combines Excellent Sound Quality, Elegant Design and Levitating Driver Technology to Pioneer New Personal Audio Design

OAKLAND, Calif., Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- OM Audio, developers of advanced audio products enabling consumers to enjoy and connect with music like never before, today announced OM/ONE, which is the world's first levitating Bluetooth speaker. To get one delivered before the Holiday season visit www.omone.com.

OM/ONE Levitating Bluetooth Speaker Creates Gravity-Defying Listening Experience

As practical as it is eye-catching, the OM/ONE has exceptional sound quality and easily connects wirelessly to all major smartphones, tablets and computers. When detached, the hovering orb acts as a portable speaker that can be taken on the go. The built-in microphone transforms the OM/ONE into a conference room phone of unparalleled styling and fidelity.

"In a world full of speakers that look and sound the same, the OM/ONE stands out from all the rest," said David DeVillez, Founder and CEO at OM Audio. "Prior to our crowd-funding campaign we traveled Silicon Valley getting feedback from some prominent entrepreneurs and musicians and we've been very humbled by the praise we've received. We're looking forward to getting these in the hands of consumers this holiday season."

OM/ONE creator and audio engineer DeVillez was the former Director of Operations, R&D and Engineering at Velodyne Acoustics. One of his design breakthroughs is the OM/ONE levitating driver for hearing every high and low with no external distortion.

Listeners can enjoy the OM/ONE by itself or pair it with another OM/ONE for true stereo sound. It can power on/off, pair/dis-pair and answer call/hang-up with the push of a single button.

Early Reactions from Tech Entrepreneurs and World-Class Musicians

"As a music lover, I've tried out a lot of speakers and the OM/ONE stands up to the best personal speaker technology and sound out there...and it floats...in the air! Pretty cool. I bought two of them already, one for the office and one for personal use," said J Sider, Founder and CEO of BandPage.com.

"I didn't believe it until I saw it – there's something weird about walking toward a beat, only to realize that it's coming out of a rotating orb, floating in mid air. That's some cool shit. This will make a great gift," said Jack Conte, multi-instrumentalist/songwriter for the band Pomplamoose and Founder and CEO of Patreon.

"The OM/ONE is one of the coolest products I've seen on Tilt. Not only is it a Bluetooth speaker with amazing sound quality, but it levitates! Beautiful design with great sound – I can't wait for mine to arrive," said James Beshara, Co-Founder and CEO of Tilt.com.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
