Ceramic Buddha Machine

Apparently, a new ceramic version of the Buddha Machine is on the cards for Xmas 2011… Yay…!

For those who haven’t experienced the pleasure of previous editions, the Buddha Machine is essentially a small plastic box that plays ambient loops, inspired by the Buddhist prayer boxes found at temples around Asia.

Nendo: Otokurage earphone

Otokurage, designed by Japanese studio Nendo, are earphones with a soft feel and transparency reminiscent of a jellyfish (in Japanese ‘oto’ = sound and ‘kurage’ = jellyfish).

Nendo have enlarged the silicon ear caps to cover the earphones completely, hiding the entire device and unifying the components into one piece. The earphones are packaged in a PET plastic soft drink bottle.

Natural Speaker

Natural Speaker

Korean designers Joon&Jung have hand-crafted a set of speakers by strapping punctuated ceramic cubes onto a stack of twigs. Apparently, the combination of materials gives a slight echo to create a more natural sound.

Each set of pieces is individually crafted by hand and each porcelain casing checked for best amplifying performance.
