IPod Speakers Made From Gourds

When I think of gourds, I usually think of cheesy Fall harvest centerpieces on the cover of Family Circle. So it’s nice to see gourds put to some good use with these unique handcrafted speakers.

iPod Gourd Speakers

Japan’s Bird Electron decided it would be nice to see some speakers made from natural materials, so they came up with the concept. Each speaker has a 2.3-inch diameter full-range driver, sealed tightly into the body of the hollowed out fruit. It’s said that the gourd shell produces a soft, easy sound, so if you were planning on playing your Metallica through these, they’re probably not for you.

They’re currently available from AssistOn for  ¥18,000 ($146 USD) for a pair along with an amplified stereo breakout box. It’s also possible to hook up a single speaker (¥9,800 / $80 USD) to your music player if you don’t need stereo sound.

If you’re trying to get these outside of Japan, you also might want to check with Audiocubes. They’ve been known to import Bird Electron products on occasion.
