Moldable Speaker / speaker

Moldable Speaker

The Moldable Speaker is malleable, enabling the body of the product to be shaped as you wish. In addition, the volume of sound can be adjusted at a certain place on the surface of the product. The Moldable Speaker we have created is made of an aluminum mesh embedded in rubber foam. A combination of input and output (flexible sensors and speaker) are placed onto the surface in a circular form.
The Moldable Speaker can be used by people during various activities, such as in the work place, lying on a bed, in the outdoors or in motion. Afterwards, participants were encouraged to talk about their thoughts of the meaning of the substance and form.
