In what has to be one of the oddest trends I’ve seen, Japanese company Bird Electron has produced a set of speakers built to resemble octopus traps. As you might have guessed, octopus traps are used to catch octopi.
Bird-Electron, the people who brought us iPod speakers made from gourds, has released another set of unique speakers for your portable media player. This time, the speakers are using recylced plastic containers from 35mm film to produce sound.
In addition to the environmentally-friendly reuse of materials, Bird-Electron Kodak Speakers don’t even need a battery to operate.
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.
