Literally rising up the ranks to become our favourite gadget is Merlin’s Levitating Orbital Speaker. While the powerful 10-hour battery and 360-degree sound provided by the spherical shape ensure your music will play loud and long, we love the cleverly placed electromagnets that make the speaker hover mid-air, taking every party up a notch. It’s also got Bluetooth connectivity and a USB charging port to connect your tablet or smartphone. How cool is that! Dh495, Emax.
