Eyes out on stalks

That's because this well-heeled hi-fi was inspired by a snail…

The Sonus Faber Sf16 all-in-one wireless hi-fi boasts stereo speaker pods that extend on motorised stalks (like the eyes of the humble snail, see?). The ultimate luxury hi-fi for the terminally-rich, each one is handmade by Italian craftsmen and a mere 200 are released each year. Next month: a smartphone that looks like a llama.

See hear

This winged insanity's two tiny-but-mighty speakers are driven by a 1400-watt digital powerhouse of an amp.

Here's their slightly weird promo video...
