Amplify Your iPhone

A simplified speaker system

SOUND WAVES OF THE FUTURE: This translucent coiled waveguide amplifies your iPhone's speakers using only its horn-shaped acoustic structure, so there's no power cord and batteries are not included -- just like in that Jessica Tandy movie you totally don't watch when nobody's looking.
