Is Your iPod Feeling Horny? Mate Its Bottom With This Speaker Dock
March 19th, 2011
This gigantic speaker dock for iDevices uses LG Hausys’ HI-MACS material so that it can deliver a full spectrum of sound with minimal vibrations. It was designed by Korean architect Shi-Hyung Jeon to mimic traditional Han-bok and Beo-seon clothes. To me, it looks more like a giant horn, but a lot of thought went into this design to make it an efficient speaker too.
The HI-MACS material has been thermoformed into sweeping curves, and helps drive four small full-range three-inch drivers per channel to a powerful level, due to its acoustic properties. The enclosure allows for minimal sound diffraction, providing the purest sounds.
When this enormous podium speaker is lit up, it definitely looks pretty impressive. There’s no word yet if this will every make it into production, but it’s definitely an interesting concept design.
