The Flattest Boombox You’ve Ever Seen

by Range

By definition, boomboxes are supposed to be big, loud and thick. That’s not how Hannes Harms designed his unique spin on the boombox. His latest creation attempts to reduce material, volume and components thanks to flat electronics. This personal audio solution was made out of a perforated sheet of acid-etched stainless steel.

The stainless steel sheet is only 0.5mm thick and it holds the speaker component in place. This could reduce the shipping of such a speaker simply to an envelope. Once it’s received, the flat speaker could be easily assembled by bending into shape. Although there are some flat speakers already in production, I particularly like how this concept looks.

A prototype of this flat speaker was showcased at the RCA show in the UK, but there’s no word on if or when it will go into production.
