It looks good but more importantly, it sounds good and when you link up several of Samsung’s new Shape M7 speakers in your home, this system acts as a wi-fi hub allowing you to sync up your tunes in rooms all through the house.

We have reached the point where technology has begun to eat its own tail. Here’s more proof: the Impossible Instant Lab will quickly turn any image on your iPhone or iPod Touch into an old school Polaroid print. For more info on what a Polaroid print is, just ask somebody old.
It looks like a classic Marshall tube amp with its gold, vintage-style analog knobs and the old school cloth grill but it’s actually an 80-watt home speaker system. It’s got built-in bluetooth or you can plug in your turntable, tape deck, or iPod with its 3.5mm audio & RCA inputs.
