In Item of the Day, What's New by Accessories Staff1 Comment

Hello? Hellooo?


In case you’re wondering, this isn’t some fashion-forward version of an old fashioned ear horn for the hard of hearing.

It’s our cool new low-tech-meets-high-tech gizmo: a PVC megaphone-type speaker. Connect it to your iPhone 4/4S and your digital tunes (or phone conversations) will be blasting through the office and annoying your cube neighbors in a very analog way.

Known as the Ark Canary II, the acoustic speaker is one of the “somehow charming and humorous” offerings from Ark, an Oakland, California-based company that specializes in offbeat tech accessories.

We’re not the only ones who liked the idea. It received the iF Gold Award, the design “Oscars,” for 2012.

Retail, $19. Call: 518-419-0815;
