Up Next Death to Apple's Mac Mini: I made a Hackintosh

You've heard of soaring music, but this is ridiculous. LG has created a speaker that actually flies.

Sort of, anyway. The LG Levitating Wireless Speaker, also known as the PJ9, hovers above its catchily-named Levitation Station base to play music with no wires, as if by magic.
