“Children see magic since they look for it. “ - Christopher Moore
Mystery intrigues most people but only magic creates surprise. This system comprised of a monitor with a speaker band at its base and a discrete subwoofer speaker uses Corning’s Gorilla Glass Speaker technology. The monitor glass becomes black when it is turned off and transparent when it is powered up. Glass on the speaker gradates from translucent at the bottom to opaque midway up the walls of the speaker. This treatment subtly exposes the frame while hiding internal speaker components. Magic occurs when the glass speaker belts out its exquisite sound.
