Passive speaker for Ipad; Soundsnap

Sustainability Aspects: The speakers of the Ipad are on the backside. This adapter brings the sound to the front without using power


It’s really not always easy to hear the sounds from the iPad 2 speaker. When you are sitting on your sofa, lying in bed or watching a movie on the iPad, it is nested on the Smart Cover or you legs and closing off the speakers. Often it would be preferable to move the sound up to the front, upto your face and ears. Enter Soundsnap. It easily fits onto the bottom of your iPad 2 and moves the sound to where you need it to be – in your ears.

Using a soft coated plastic material, the friction holds the Soundsnap in place. You can even use it while charging the iPad, and when the Smart cover is on.

Currently this is a concept – but Mads is working on acquiring some prototypes, and bring it on the market. Anyone? Get in contact with Mads
