We’ve seen plenty of iOS speaker docks which claim to be green because they are made out of natural materials and because no electricity is required. Instead the sound is usually amplified naturally by making use of the science of acoustics. If you’re a fan of such systems, then this Kickstarter project called the Bloombox might be worth taking a look at. Pictured above is the “device” and basically it’s a stand for your iPhone or iPod touch with a hollowed out middle.
As you can imagine, its creators have hollowed out the middle not just for acoustic purposes, but so that you can actually use the empty space to grow some plants, or maybe even set up a tiny Zen garden. While some might think that this is a little frivolous and novel, we have to admit that we like the idea. Not only does this double up as a natural amplifier for your iOS device, but at the same time looks like it will be a nice piece of home decoration that you can proudly display on your coffee table.
