Recycled Paper Ceramic Speakers: Can You Hear Me Now?

Mark this one in the "great materials use; not so great implementation" column: thin paper ceramic loudspeakers made from discarded musical scores and clay. The ceramic columns amplify sound from your strategically placed earbuds to broadcast music like regular speakers would; it's like your earbuds yelling through an orange street cone.

Though we doubt the sound quality would be top notch, ceramic does reverberate sound very well, and we like the idea that the recycled musical scores are no longer reliant on someone else to play the music; they can do it themselves, and are given a 2nd chance to fulfill their destiny - the propagation of music. Cute. Another pic after the jump. ::Jieyu Design via ::Crib Candy
