From 3D printing solutions firm BigRep, this acoustic phone amplifier takes inspiration from 1887 and the gramophone. Based on 140 year old technology, the printable device uses natural acoustics to amplify sound.

To use, place the narrow end of the phone amplifier near your iPhone's speaker. Since it relies on the science of sound waves, there is no need for batteries, cords, Bluetooth or even to connect it to your smartphone. This is a huge departure (or throw back) from jukebox speaker technology that acts as the base of most music players in production today.

The amplifier has not yet been released for public consumption. The stunning shell-like design will be a welcome addition to your home decor when that day comes.
