Here’s a really cool iPod speaker/dock that uses a hollowed tree as its base. I wonder how good the bass is and I am bettin’ it’s pretty darn good. Now, can you put some subs in there?
This huge hollowed tree trunk serves as an iPod dock and speaker system. Created by Austrian design studio KMKG, it weighs in at 60 kg (about 130 lbs).
They describe it as “just a simple tree (trunk) hollowed out with a special technique to create extraordinary sound.” They worked with speaker company Lenz on the sound engineering, customers can choose the type of wood, length of the trunk and have some input on which techniques are used to influence the type of sound.
