Creative SurroundStation

This spidery device represents an effort at fixing the Great Unsolved Problem of surround sound for computers: where to put the rear speakers? Some systems come with tripods, but these take up floor space and leave cables to be tripped over; others encourage bolting speakers to the walls. The SurroundStation provides a neat solution that doesn't require any drilling.
