Happy force Friday everyone and what a treat I have for you in store today. Found in the dark recesses of the galaxy is this levitating Death Star speaker courtesy of Plox and licensed by Disney.
The novelty of all novelties this Death Star Bluetooth speaker will play all the tunes in your dark side mix whilst gracefully levitating above it’s Star Wars base. Crank up that imperial death march and just gaze at your master creation rotating as if by magic!
Plox’s Star Wars Levitating Death Star Speaker is now available to purchase in the UK.
Combining 360-degree laser-like sound projection with an out-of-this-world levitation system, this officially licensed collectable has been designed by Star Wars fans for Star Wars fans. The gravity-defying orb levitates in mid-air above the base using Plox’s force technology.
The Death Star features a built-in 5-watt speaker that spins to the music. The gravity-defying orb rotates above the magnetic base and offers up to five hours continuous playback.

The speaker itself is built rather nicely and it’s levitation powers are always intriguing to behold. I feel as tho if you’re a big fan of audio quality and precision then this item isn’t for you. Whilst the sound certainly isn’t the worst I’ve heard from a Bluetooth speaker it certainly isn’t the best either. But if you’re purchasing for the novelty factor alone then this speaker is perfect. This Death Star levitating speaker would look great next to any Star Wars model collection, book collection or anything from the Star Wars universe. It will happily sit on a desk or shelf and continue to amaze you with its floating powers (until your battery runs out).
The setup is fairly easy to get the death star floating. I certainly made the mistake of leaving the power off on the base multiple times to which the Death Star slammed into the base with magnetic force. I’d certainly be careful when setting the Death Star in float mode and make sure the power on the base is on when you’re setting it up. The magnets are incredibly strong and in time this could really damage the Death Star if you keep forgetting to turn the power on and it keeps repeated slamming into the base with some force.
Overall this Star Wars levitating Death Star is a great little item and something that really allows you to explore your dark side. The second I connected it to my phone (via Bluetooth) there was only one song in mind. The Imperial Death March.
The force is strong with this speaker. Very strong indeed.
