This phone case speaker will provide protection for your smartphone while also amplifying your music and acting as an extra earpiece. Invented by Alex Selig and Varun Srinivasan, the Amp case for iPhones is both a microphone and a speaker.

It can adjust what you are playing to compensate for ambient background noise. The phone case speaker has 'dynamic noise reduction ' technology that can analyze sound and tune it out rather than cancelling it. It also works with any headphone set, even if they are the noise-cancelling variety.

The first hardware from SoundFocus, the Amp indicates the desire for multi-purpose products when it comes to consumer electronics. It also indicates audio as a focus in terms of interfaces. This interface provides a step before wearable technology in this realm.
