I’ve seen all sorts of musical instruments running on the iPhone, but this is the first one I’ve come across that might involve getting a little spit on your screen.
Smule’s new iPhone app, Ocarina turns your iPhone into a fully-functional musical wind instrument.
Ever since the iPhone hit stores a couple of years back, I’ve been an addict. While the iPhone itself is a star, I’ve never thought all that much of the earbuds that come with it. Now iPhone cronies have another choice for listening to tunes and making phone calls.
Here’s a fun little sound system you can connect to your portable media player. ZumReed’s Pocket DJ Speaker looks like a tiny little turntable.
The mini speaker is small enough to carry on your keychain, hang from a briefcase, bookbag or purse strap.
This wild piece of modern furniture may look like an abstract shape from the mind of its creator, but it’s actually been precisely engineered from a 3-dimensional waveform plot of a brief audio clip.
To make his Sound/Chair, designer Matthew Plummer-Fernandez started with a 3D plot based on the volume, time and frequency of a short piece of audio.
The Gakken SX-150 is a little analog synthesizer kit that came packaged in a recent issue of a Japanese DIY science magazine. Now, these funky mini synths have started to show up around the globe, leaving all sorts of interesting beeps, blips and squeals in their wake.
Here’s a nifty idea for some nifty desktop speakers. All you need is 6 cheap square Mylar speakers, 21 cable ties, and the patience to stitch ’em together into a see-through cube. Et Voilà!
This speaker cube was recently spotted over on the MAKE: Flickr Pool and seems like a really cool concept.
I’m really not sure who the target audience is for this odd mobile phone handset. Maybe it’s for people trying to quit smoking? Or is it for people who want to look like they’re smokers? Regardless, you sure will look goofy making your phone calls into this thing.
When I think of 2001: A Space Odyssey, it usually conjures up imagery of HAL 9000’s glowing red light, the strains of Also Sprach Zarathrustra, and dead astronauts launched silently into space.
But the guys over at Studio Electronics used the film as inspiration for the design of their new Omega Orion synthesizer.
Looking for a cool speaker for your MP3 player? Check out this portable speaker that looks like a miniature version of the amps you might see up on a stage at a rock concert.
The MP3 Amp Speaker is a dead ringer for its larger cousins, complete with a cloth front grill, curved corner protectors and a textured finish that looks like leather.
I was researching a different story altogether, when I came across these awesome desktop speakers which look like little disco dancers.
At first glance, I actually thought they looked like South Park’s Eric Cartman dressed up like fat Elvis with a jumbo 1970s ‘fro.
This odd little speaker for your portable media player distinguishes itself by its spherical shape.
ZumReed’s Sound Ball speaker hangs on your key chain or a book bag, and plugs into the audio jack on your iPod or other media player when your ready to play your tunes.
As anticipated, Apple today took the lid off the iPhone 3G, the latest and greatest models in the iPhone series. Highlights of the new phones include high speed wireless data capabilities, a built-in GPS system, and a substantial price cut.
These tipsy egg-shaped speakers let you wobble them like a Weeble while you listen to your tunes.
Unlike real eggs (and those colorful Weebles), these only come in black and red, and they don’t crack open to produce omelets.
Ever heard the saying “If these walls could talk”? If this invention ever makes it into production, your walls soon could get a voice of their own. This new technology has the potential to turn just about any surface, including your walls, into a speaker.
Do we really need any more distractions we need while we drive down the road? This over-the-top replacement sun visor for your vehicle manages to cram in just about everything but the kitchen sink.
Not only can the visor play DVDs, audio and video files, it can play retro video games on its 7-inch LCD 16×9 widescreen display.
