Super Mario Subwoofer Paint Job

Super Mario Subwoofer Paint Job
I really dig the great job that Nintendo enthusiast Michael Karpinski did with his new subwoofer. He’s carefully painted it to match the classic “question mark” brick from the Super Mario game series.

IPod Speakers Made From Gourds

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. Japan’s Bird Electron decided it would be nice to see some speakers made from natural materials, so they came up with the concept.

Scandyna Drop Speakers: Did Aliens Leave These Behind?

The Wii-Mote Theramin

The Wii-Mote Theramin
Without a doubt, the theramin is one of the oddest musical instruments ever invented. Usually heard cranking out spaceship sounds in 1950’s B-movies, it’s otherworldy sounds are unmistakeable and truly quirky. So it is with much glee that I bring you the Wii-mote powered theramin, playing the inimitable Theme from Star Trek.

Grundig Wireless Speaker Provides 360° Surround

Grundig Wireless Speaker Provides 360° Surround
I’m not sure what to make of the industrial design of this funky wireless speaker from German electronics maker Grundig. To me it looks sort of like some kind of vacuum cleaner or other household appliance, but the Grundig PSW5000 is actually an outdoor wireless sound system.
