Sound Induction

post #1 of 9

The claim that anything can become a speaker and that depending on what you put on it, the sound changes. Does anyone know if this is as good as it claims? How would putting this on a bed with soft sheets, or a chair that's not really completely flat?

 

Hopefully someone can chime in!

No I think you need some kind of solid surface. Sound quality will suck, but I guess this is just a fun gadget.

there are loads of system like that, this one is bigger so i guess the form factor makes it possible to get some sound on it s own. where the systems i ve seen before wouldn't make a sound if not stuck on a table or a window or a box. any surface that can vibrate or resonate. so a pillow would disappoint you ;)

 

the idea is to make the surface it s on to vibrate, turning it into a really poor speaker. the sound will greatly depend on the surface.

 

 the only force of such a thing (out of the gadget addiction) is the size factor compared to a speaker.

but then in a situation where you need space and travel, why would anyone take this over a good pair of iem?

I ordered one of those speakers off of amazon just because I need to find out what happens when I put it on my face.

I got my vibration speaker in the mail a couple of days ago.

 

It's actually pretty damn cool. On certain walls and windows it works quite good, and you can hear it on the other side just as much so I can put it on the dividing wall of my apartment to annoy my neighbor. The bass volume can actually get pretty decent when just sitting it on a counter top.

 

On smaller objects and stuff that vibrates too much, it gets horribly distorted.

 

Can you get better sound for $40? Most likely. But it's still a really cool toy. Hopefully they sell better sticky pads than mine came with though as it isn't enough to hold its own weight sideways(I got a Mighty Dwarf knockoff).
