TOK TOK has created a more environmentally friendly way to amplify the sound from your smartphone using sustainable materials to create a fully working smartphone amplifier called Trobla that is both tactile and efficient.
The portable and sustainable Trobla smartphone amplifier is capable of being used with either iOS or Android devices and includes no complex technology.
Watch the video below to learn more about this simple but very effective way to amplify the sound from your smartphone. The Trobla project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise just $10,700 in pledges to make the jump into manufacture.
“We use our smartphones to play music, yet we find it frustrating that their tiny speakers are not strong enough to set any sort of atmosphere. We like to work with wood, so we set ourselves the challenge of creating an amplifier that doesn’t require a single electronic component.
Trobla is adapted to be flexible in matching the diversity of smartphones available today and in the future. Focusing on devices with speakers on the bottom, we developed a system of detachable pieces that can be easily interchanged to fit changing generations of iPhone or different smartphone models.
We designed and tested multiple prototypes to make our amplifier live up to its name. Trobla is the Slovenian word for horn, and we want to orchestrate the best sound a horn can produce. The secret lies in getting it to come out as smooth as possible from your smartphone through the amp. We used a cone to keep tones sharp and created a special chamber to enhance the stereophony and low frequencies.”
