The Most Elegant iPhone Speaker Is Just A Single Piece Of Blown Glass

Here is a sleek way to showcase your iPhone's looks and sounds. There are no wires or buttons or even plastic in this passive amp—just a single piece of glass, handcrafted to exacting proportions, that can wrap a room in sound.

"My Phone Amp" is the work of glass artist Aric Snee. He blows the molten glass, then shapes it with wooden tongs into sound-amplifying curves. A slot also keeps the phone's screen at a preferred viewing angle. Should it strike your minimalist fancy, "My Phone Amp" is available for sale at Snee's online store. [Aric Snee via designboom]
