For electricity-free speakers, this design might be the most interesting. Artist and maker Christopher Locke used old broken trumpets and a few spare machine parts to build a sculpture that serves as both decoration and functional speakers for your iPhone or iPod. Check out the video and listen to the incredible difference this broken trumpet makes in the sound of the music.

The speakers are make from salvaged trumpets and machine parts. Comprised of brass, steel and stainless steel, the Analog Tele-Phonographer pieces are going to for $400.

These clever designs are more than just steampunk-style speakers -- they're also functional. Just listen:

No power source is needed as the trumpet simply amplifies the sound. It is similar to the Phonophone design, only with more personality.
