Bang & Olufsen speakers sound great, but it tends to be their designs that always have people talking. Their newest model is no exception with the reveal of the Beosound Edge. Inspired by the British Pound coin, the minimalist aluminum ring features proximity sensors that light up as you approach to let you start, stop, and skip tracks via its touch-sensitive surface.

What's really interesting is the way you adjust the volume. The speaker is calibrated to detect the force of your touch as you roll the speaker back and forth to lower or increase the volume. The aluminum ring encircles an elaborate speaker system that contains an active bass port, a 10" woofer, two 4" midrange drivers, two 3/4" tweeters, and six class D amplifiers. 

Beosound Edge will be available this November.

$3,500, bang-olufsen.com
