The new amplifier for iPhone and iPad made by means 3D to the press
There is a fine way of growth of sound waves – even without accessories for which power supply is necessary – which bears esthetic properties. One of attempts to connect these aforementioned elements led to emergence of a work of art with the suitable title Opus (Composition). The project is engaged at present in fund raising on realization. It is a child of designer Sandzhit Das from Innovation Factory, inclusive joint design society in West Loop Chicago.
The main idea of Opus consisted in development of a board to hold the device. It settled down in a position of 60 degrees. It absolutely is suitable for listening of music or viewing of films at natural expansion of a sound. It also solves the next question with modern portable devices in what placement of loudspeakers is based generally on visual, instead of functional reasonings. In this case strengthening of a sound is created by a form, changing the directions of a sound exit of the device. The built-in loudspeakers lateral or directed back turn forward thanks to the spherical bent form. Opus – ordinary, but very functional decision. When the rack is not used, two parts can be connected to the help of magnets for creation of the closed sphere with 2 interconnected parts where turnaround forces counterbalance each other. After all, the spherical form not absolutely associates with portability – without an auxiliary accessory for its carrying, whether Opus in a pocket will be located? In process of increasing popularity of tablets, the answer can be positive, and bad, and depends on light industry which develops models of future jeans.
The 1st (experimental) models and all configurations on a phase of prototyping of the amplifier stand were completely made on 3D printers – Replicator 2 and UP!. If is more exact – final versions will be made by means of molding under pressure, after all, according to the company, a limited number of Opus will create on 3D printers if they manage to raise all necessary funds.
Stands will be offered in several flowers. But to pick up to color iPhone 5S champagne/gold for Opus it will be possible only having chosen 3D the printing version – it would be desirable to believe that it can be made. If to you to taste less picturesque and limited colors, the black version hardly will once get out of fashion.
The amplifier rack at first was developed for iPad above the second generation, iPhone, since the 4th generation, also iPod from the third generation – Opus can be used also about Samsung of Galaxy S3 and the new S4 model. As it is necessary, if Opus nevertheless appears in the market, need for 2 personal marketing campaigns can seem – but this position unites an esthetics and productivity in old style. But, before developers will start thought on the following strategic decisions, it is earlier necessary to receive necessary financing – in their case of $10000 (at the moment of article writing they received the fifth part from this sum). Look at promises Sandzhita:
