Nonlinear Studio’s Amplifiear is a clever clip-on device designed to enhance your iPad’s sound. Stunning in its simple design and basic, low-tech construction—no batteries or wires, nor electric currents of any kind required—the Amplifiear magnifies volume by reflecting and redirecting sound forward from the iPad’s back speaker.
Lately, we’ve seen a rise in backings in famous crowd funding platform Kickstarter. The most talked about (at least in the tech world) is the Pebble, an E-Paper watch for iPhone and Android. As of now it received almost $7 million in backings. The objective was raising $100'000.
It’s an awesome project and it would probably be the first one I’d back (if only I had an iPhone). Here go other two projects that are Apple (for the iPad specifically) related and you might be interested in.
Why would we deal with any of these hassles if there were a product that could clip right onto our iPad and simply amplify and clarify the sound that is already coming out of our iPad, using the simple geometry of an old gramophone. The Amplifiear does just this.
