Axel Pfaender, dessen Arcade Machine-Poster ich vor einer Weile gebloggt hatte, hat ein neues Kickstarter-Baby gelauncht: die Berlin Boombox, ein Design-Ghettoblaster aus Pappe für's iPhone, die Produktion der Boombox lässt er sich grade über Kickstarter finanzieren. Sehr schick!
The Berlin Boombox is a portable stereo speaker made of cardboard with built-in stereo amplifier with some bold Design: The case is screen-printed with bold black and white graphic art designed by Axel Pfaender, making the Berlin Boombox a real eye-catcher. It's a contemporary take on the design of oldschool boomboxes. The Berlin Boombox comes as a kit consisting of a die-cut cardboard structure, all electronic parts, and four AA batteries. Assembly is easy, tools-free and takes only a couple of minutes. No geek knowledge necessary.
Technology: Use the Berlin Boombox with your iPhone, iPod or any other MP3 player. Insert your device (where back in the days the tape used to go). Connect via 3,5 mm stereo jack which ensures that a wide range of devices can be used, not only iPhones or iPods. Unlike most other cardboard speakers on the market this one features an integrated amplifier that provides stereo sound. The Berlin Boombox is controlled with a single, beautiful, big aluminum knob for power/volume.
Sustainable Design: The Berlin Boombox is made of partially recycled cardboard. All cardboard parts are fully recyclable. It also saves weight which means less energy is used for shipping. The BerlinBoombox is made in Berlin. Except for the electronic parts, which are imported from asia, all design, screen-printing, cardboard production and packaging is done locally.
