Trash Amps, one of the projects on show at the Bay Area Maker Faire, are encouraging people to “Reuse it for Music.” These small electronic inserts transform your junk into portable speakers for your MP3 players and musical instruments. Everyday objects you would normally throw away, like soda cans, Chinese take-out boxes and jars, can find a new lease of life as a unique speaker. And if you get bored with your object, you can just recycle it and choose a new one. Take a look at this video to see the Trash Amps in action:
