If you ever wanted to unzip your speaker – here is the opportunity. Zipper Speaker is a speaker that features a zip-like interface. By opening the textile cover the speaker is turned on. The size of the aperture symbolizes the volume – the wider the louder. The user zips open the cover to turn the speaker on and adjusts the volume depending on how far the zipper is opened. This makes it intuitive and fun to enjoy music. The jury: a smart solution and a good presentation.
