Hi Tech Paper Cups, Low Tech Speakers.

The designer Dmitry Zagga has created these iPod CupSpeakers from nothing more than a few large disposable paper cups, a few toothpicks, the iPod earbuds and plenty of spare time.

He claims the volume increase is ‘significant’ and his fancy photography makes this DIY project created in a shed look like something straight out of a Steve Jobs Powerpoint.

The sound is magnified due to the shape of the cup, not any fancy-schmancy ‘electronics.’ It may not compete with, you know, real speakers, but Dmitry’s got a good sense of humor and it looks like a fun project for the incredibly bored.

On next weeks blog we construct a ‘telephone’ using the same two cups and length of string.
