Many people always talk about what the future holds. Thinking about it makes people imagine how the world will be 20 or 40 years from now. Stretching the imagination this way sometimes helps people get those creative juices out. People try to imagine how certain gadgets today will look like in the future and try to recreate it today.

It unique function also has the future in mind- you can control it using hand gestures.

There are several sensors on the Futurist’s Hand Activated iPhone Speaker that allows users to control it just by making hand gestures. Infrared sensors on both sides of its fuselage can detect hand gestures to increase or decrease volume. A sensor on the left speaker detects motion to pause or change tracks. A sensor on its nose turns the device on or off.
