Papercraft Speakers Crank Out Modern Tunes in Retro Form

 |  |  |  |  |  |  September 12, 2009


Who says your speakers have to be made out of wood, plastic or metal? These retro mini speakers prove that papercraft speakers look just as good.

Each one of these miniature speaker kits from Japan’s Princeton is a DIY papercraft project. You’ll need glue, scissors, and X-Acto to assemble these models for yourself (assembly manual here). There’s three different designs to choose from, including a red boom box, a bookshelf stereo and an old cabinet hi-fi system.

Each one has a compact USB-powered NXT (mono) speaker module that sits inside to give you decent quality sound out of a paper box. To give you a sense of the size of these things, the old fashioned stereo console measures about 6-inches wide, and it’s the largest kit.

For those of you in Japan, you can order from Princeton Direct for ¥1980 each. Worldwide orders are available from the Japan Trend Shop for $35 (USD) each.
