Mini iPod Boombox: Speakers
I love the 80's... style wise. Despite the overly-teased hair and the shoulder pads, that decade wielded some very cool fashion trends. The boombox, for example. Carried over the shoulder by beach go-ers and city slickers (slicking cities, no doubt) alike. Although the look remains cool, it is altogether too impractical to carry a boombox every where you go, and, unfortunately, cassette tapes have gone the way of the Quagga (i.e. extinct). So, Cardboard Classics offers a solution: iPod/mp3 speaker that are less than half the size (and the price) of a classic 80's boombox. Furthermore, this is made out of cardboard (except for the actual speakers, of course), so you environmentalists out there don't have to worry about a few pounds of plastic and wires decomposing over time... just the tiny speakers and 2 AA batteries!
I pretty much have to have these. Anyone want a pair of Bose computer speakers so I can get myself this speaker made of sustainable wood?
I have seen iPod cases like this on the DIY circuit for some time now, but, having the self-motivation and talent of a stoned sloth. So I was very happy to see that someone had finally realized the gap in the market created by laz... I have seen iPod cases like this on the DIY circuit for some time now, but, having the self-motivation and talent of a stoned sloth. So I was very happy to see that someone had finally realized the gap in the market created by lazy people, like me, and has decided to mass produce this product. The someone in question is actually from a company called 'Contexture Design' and the product is actually a real, hollowed out cassette tape. The tape is then given the proper holes for headphones, foam padding, and a plastic protective screen that allows you to access the click-wheel. Note: This product only currently fits generation 1 and 2 Nanos, so any one with a newer model will have to use the old fashioned scissors and glue method (oh well. You really didn't want to keep that old Hootie and the Blowfish cassette, now did you?).
