3D-Printed iPhone Amplifier Evokes the Year 1887
BigRep's acoustic amplifier takes inspiration from the gramophone
3D-printing solutions company BigRep has created a printable iPhone speaker amplifier based on technology almost 140 years old.
The amplifier works just like the gramophone, first introduced to the market in 1887. You might recognize the design from RCA Records’ iconic logo of a dog listening to a portable record player. The first recorded sounds in history, laid down by Thomas Edison, were reproduced through a gramophone amplifier.
