Clever DIY invention

This guy takes 2 plastic cups and a paint roller and makes a DIY boombox for cellphones. Pretty darn clever.

Just thought I'd share since there's probably a lot of you on here who listen to music through your phone.

Or you can just throw your phone into any tiny open-ended container for a volume boost. I think certain materials resonate better than others, but at least you don't have to assemble anything...

Just stick your phone into a tin can...

Profit?

I wish.

It is clever, sure. I will keep with my soundbar+subwoofer for now, though.

@BranKetra:

Haha, good call. I suppose this method is for people who are on a budget with no existing stereo dock for their phones.

Neat, but ultimately pointless considering how cheap actual speakers are.

Neat looking, but I'll stick to throwing my phone in my plastic water pitcher at home for a sound boost.
