Do you ever have trouble hearing music when it’s played through your iPhone speakers? I usually use earbuds when I’m listening to music on my iPhone, but I know some people prefer not to use those. If you’ve ever thought, “It would sure be nice to have a handy little amp to attach to my iPhone, but I want it to be environmentally friendly, and it should be collapsible so it takes up no space when I want to store it or travel with it” you are in luck because that’s what I’m about to show you.
This nifty little thing is called an eco-amp, and it was created by eco-made. It’s an amp for your iPhone, and since it comes flat (you fold it into this horn shape), you can unfold it to transport it or store it. What a cute idea!
It’s made completely from post consumer paper, and the ink is even soy-based. You can tell that they took inspiration from the old horns that used to be on gramophone players to design this. If you don’t know what a gramophone is (you can see it in some really old movies), check out the Google Images link here. This amp looks like it might be just a little bit too fragile for my lifestyle, but I can see how some people would really dig it, especially for when they’re traveling. It would be great to put this on your iPhone in your hotel room if the only other option is the radio. Each pack comes with two of these for 8 dollars, and you can pick up a pack at eco-made.
