The Bongue Amplifier Uses Kinetic Energy to Project Audio

Studio Toer’s Bongue Amplifier isn’t your typical hi-tech state-of-the-art speakers available in stores.

The Bongue Amplifier is a minimalist contraption in which the speaker is hung up on the wall with steel wires. The way sound is projected is through kinetic energy when you swing the arm. The audio signal then slowly amplifies through a descending counterweight. The Bongue Amplifier may require some effort to power, but it’s an interesting concept nonetheless.
