Stephenson wants people to flashback to a time when box TV sets were popular.
Jeffrey Stephenson has a way with making tech gadgets look like anomalies in this modern day and age, and his recent project, the DuMont, is not too far off the mark.
Styled after a 1950s TV set, the DuMont is an enclosure for an iPad mini and a Jawbone Jambox. This replica features a birch plywood frame finished in semi-gloss lacquer, complete with a woven speaker grille.
Users can slide their devices into the cutout sections on the side of the box to experience what flat-screens can’t offer. To adjust the volume, simply tilt the set, as controls can be accessed from the bottom.
The only way to get your hands on this miniature replica is to contact Stephenson directly. But if you want to take on the ambitious project yourself, check out Bit-Tech’s forums for the project work log.
