Rockler Koostik Kit
This is just too cool and bizarre not to mention. Rockler is selling a kit for the Koostik, an iphone speaker that just works on natural acoustics. No electricity, no volume buttons, just wood with some strange 'ear canal' looking channels carved through it.
From the press release:
"When the iPhone is placed in the Koostik cradle, the music is instantly amplified due to the carefully designed sound channels and acoustic chambers. The sound will fill the room without using any additional power beyond what the iPhone uses to operate," says Scott Ekman, Rockler's Vice President of Marketing.
It apparently amplifies the music by two to four times, so you're probably not going to be able to shake the windows with Sepultura. But a little Chet Baker while you're reading is entirely doable.
The kit comes in two pieces (body and face frame) and is unfinished, so you can put it together with any flourishes you want and coat it with whatever makes you happy. It costs $50. Which is about half of the price of one if you buy it assembled
