Flexpeaker: Paper-Thin Speakers Could Mean Your E-Newspaper Might One Day Read Itself to You
Wouldn’t it be cool if your could get some speakers that are even thinner than that ultra-slim flat TV you’ve got hanging on the wall? Well you might not have to wait long thanks to this new technology that produces speakers that are as thick as a sheet of paper.

Little Horn Speakers: Nothing Little About Them at All

Little Horn Speakers: Nothing Little About Them at All
Little Horn speakers pack an audiophile’s wet dream into an elegant form. According to makers Specimen Products, the speakers’ supersized phonograph-like horns “posses a life-like soundstage unlike anything ever heard.” I don’t know what a soundstage is, but it seems that the way the horns are shaped enables lower frequency sound to spread out in a bitchin’ manner.

Mp3 Grenade Redefines ‘Bombtrack’

Mp3 Grenade Redefines ‘Bombtrack’
As far as hacks and mods go, retrofitting a decommissioned hand grenade with mp3 playing guts is on the top of the clever and creative list. But as far as real world application is concerned? Well, I wouldn’t be whipping this thing out at work anytime soon.

Papercraft Speakers Crank Out Modern Tunes in Retro Form
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.

Atari Punk Console has Three Settings: Bleep, Bloop and Loud

Atari Punk Console has Three Settings: Bleep, Bloop and Loud
For those of you unfamiliar with the concept of the Atari Punk Console (APCs), they’re analog noisemakers that offer up sounds that are reminiscent of the old square-wave bleeps and bloops of the classic Atari 2600 video game system.

Aperture Science Radio Gets the Real World Treatment

Aperture Science Radio Gets the Real World Treatment
While I wouldn’t say the Aperture Laboratories radio was as iconic as – say –  the weighted companion cube, it’s still got its own cult following from die-hard Portal fans. Now – thanks to the hard work of one enterprising modder, it’s been brought to life for all to enjoy.

Street Fighter 4 Cell Phone Strapya Joystick: Combo Moves on the Go
The Japanese have managed to create an entire cottage industry out of selling crap you can hang off of your cell phone known as “Strapya”. The latest Strapya: this Street Fighter IV mini arcade joystick. The tiny controller actually yells out samples of your favorite character’s voices when you pull of their combo moves using the mini joystick and game buttons.

Mighty Mini Boom Box and Amp Speakers May be Tiny, but They’Re Strong

Mighty Mini Boom Box and Amp Speakers May be Tiny, but They’Re Strong
These tiny speakers may be Mini, but they’re supposed to sound Mighty. Both the mini boom box and guitar amp speakers are small enough to fit on your keychain, but the guys who make them say they’ve got plenty of oomph for listening to your favorite MP3s on the go.

The Ultimate Million Dollar Speaker: Sign Me Up for Two!

The Ultimate Million Dollar Speaker: Sign Me Up for Two!
Let me start out by saying that my entire 5.1 home theater sound system cost less than $1,000 bucks, so the thought of paying $1,000,000 for a single speaker is about as foreign a concept to me as Paris Hilton spending $325k on a dog house.

…and This Little Piggy Had Sound
How many times have you said to yourself: “I could really use a new speaker for my MP3 player, but I really want one that looks like a pig. Oh, and I happen to live in Japan.” Well, to the none of you who have actually said that, have I got something for you!

Eskuché 33 and 1/3 Headphones Offer Retro-Future-Licious Sound and Style
I just love the look of these luscious retro-modern headphones. Named for the rotational speed of classic vinyl records, these Eskuché 33 and 1/3 headphones should be great for listening to any music, whether recorded on a vinyl platter or in the digital ether.

Crank out some explosive sounds from your media player with this speaker that looks like a bomb. The Big Bang Speaker (a.k.a. the “Sound Bomb”) has the look of one of those ACME cartoon bombs that blew up in Wile E.

Steampunk Brass Synthesizer Blows My Mind

Steampunk Brass Synthesizer Blows My Mind
I always thought analog synthesizers were inherently retro. Just not quite this retro. This unbelievable steampunk modular synthesizer features tons of dials and intricate brass etching throughout. All of the buttons and knobs were hand lathed, and the synth includes a number of antique parts as well.
