I would've held this Magnavox speaker to my ear and pretended to be deaf, saying clever things like "What's up, sonny?" Matt Richmond combined it with some scraps of walnut to create an iPod dock.
The SF-based designer found the speaker horn at an antique store, carved out slots for the horn and iPod, and installed a channel to carry sound between the speaker and MP3 player. With the multitude of really mediocre iPod docks out there, it's great to see someone create something so unique out of their own garage. [BoingBoing Gadgets]
