Gourds are actually iPod speakers



Gourds aren’t exactly the most common type of shape you see everyday, hence the surprise when you come face to face with thi spair of Gourd Speakers from Bird Electron of Japan. Made from natural materials (that means a real, hollowed out gourd), each speaker contains a 2.3″ diameter full-rnge driver that is sealed tightly within the body of the gourd. Word has it that the type of sound produced is soft and easy, so your heavy metal collection will just have to sit this one out. A pair of these Gourd Speakers and an amplified stereo breakout box retails for $146.
