Berlin Boombox – Cardboard Speaker for the iPhone
Kickstarter is the ultimate place to spot new, up and coming designers and products and today we come across the Berlin Boombox. The Berlin Boombox is a portable stereo speaker made of cardboard with a built-in stereo amplifier. The case is screen-printed with bold black and white graphic art designed by Axel Pfaender. The boombox comes as a kit consisting of a die-cut cardboard structure, all electronic parts, and four AA batteries. You can use the boombox with the iPhone, iPod or any other MP3 player and unlike most other cardboard speakers on the market this one features an integrated amplifier that provides stereo sound.
The idea is quite intriguing and fun, but you will probably not get amazing sound out of it. The success of the boombox can all hinge on the price – if below 50 USD, it will work, above, people might rather want to spend money on a more serious speaker for their mobile device.
The project is still running on Kickstarter for another 28 days, so make sure to support it here.
