Turn Old Bottles Into A Functional Speaker System
The Cork speaker fits on top of glass bottles to produce different volumes and sounds based on the shape of the vessel
Wanting to motivate people to reuse old alcohol bottles, New York-based startup Leedeyeon invented Cork, a speaker shaped like a bottle cork that fits on top of empty containers and plays music from them.
The mini Bluetooth speaker uses the depth of the bottle to amplify sound. Owners of Cork can experiment with different bottles, as each one will produce a different style of audio depending on its shape. The bottom section of Cork pops off for users to clean away any leftover liquid that might have been on a bottle stem.
Cork started as a Kickstarter campaign in October 2017 and reached its funding goal in less than 24 hours.
