The Amplifiear by Nonlinear Studios acts as a speaker and boosts the volume on iPads in the simplest way possible. The device is literally just an ear for the iPad. Made of plastic, it clicks on the side and increases the audio by reflecting and redirecting the sound from the back speaker. The design is creative, but so simple it's a wonder it hasn't been done before.

With no cords, installation or batteries required the Amplifiear is easy to use and can't break. Since it is so light and made of plastic, they are cheap and even recyclable. Technology continues to improve and complicate but this is proof that sometimes simple and basic can be best. The Amplifiear is currently for pre-sale on Kickstarter.
