No idea about the sound (obviously) but it is an interesting concept. Probably good for use outside too.

Greensound’s speakers use the glass panel to deliver sound omnidirectionally. A sound generator in the base of the speaker vibrates the glass to project the sound; different areas of the glass are responsible for producing different frequency sounds – the curved area at the top produces high frequency sounds, the middle produces mid-range sounds, while low frequencies are produced by the larger area at the bottom near the base.

Sounds a similar concept to NXT. I wonder if it's sufficiently novel compared with NXT to get their patent granted.

NXT have never managed to break into proper HiFi, although they have had a lot of success with small PC 'speakers and singing birthday cards. I wonder what these measure like. I would guess fairly poorly, a great mass of peaky resonances.

Look nice though!
