The sneakiest compact amplifiers you can have crawling on your table are definitely the Serpent Speakers by designer Ben Wahrich. Resembling the imposing cobra figure, these sleek devices allow sound to creep smoothly, rather than quietly, in the room from your very own personal computer.
The flexible snake-like body allows the speakers to bend and assume the most fitting position, setting your imagination free to run wild and create your personal snaky motif. The glossy design almost temps you to lean forward and start practicing your karaoke skills. I guess the tricky part will be making these mysterious gadgets move and rise to the sound of hypnotizing music, which is probably one step too far.
Still, do not be fooled when they are lying still and playing dead; the Serpent Speakers can attract your attention and capturing your ears before you can make a sound.
