Tin Can Speaker Goes High Tech

Boosted Tin Can Speaker

If you feel you need a little more…excitement in your computer’s desktop speakers, Boost Mobile has teamed up with artists MINT and SERF (from the East Coast) and MAINFRAME (from the West Coast) to produce the Boosted Tin Can Speaker Set Vol. 1.

Seemingly inconspicuous as a pair of dented up tin cans, these speakers are surprisingly functional and reportedly sound amazing. The aesthetic is reminiscent of the old game of telephone where you used two empty cans of Del Monte green beans and a long bit of string to make a rudimentary telephone. Just about every kid born before 1980 (and perhaps a few after) either played with these for fun or set them up for their grade school science fair project.

These speakers take science to a whole now level as they not only work as desktop speakers, but you can also hook them up to your iPods, MP3 player phones, DVD players, laptops, gaming consoles, etc. I really like the graffiti design and from the description of these as “vol. 1″, I’m sure we can expect to see more versions of these released in the future.
