Two brothers, Scott and Mike Norrie took initiative to create what they feel is a good alternative to compact external speakers for portable music players. External speakers are not bulky yet it still require batteries to run and it is not easy to carry around, especially for overseas trips. To fill in the gap, Tembo Trunks were created with lightweight waterproof, washable silicone rubber for ease of transportation and durability. Its amplification system is able to triple the volume of the standard earphones and although it would not be sufficient for a party, it is enough to enjoy a soft background music. These are designed for iPod ear phones yet it would most likely fit other similar ear phone designs. At the time of writing, these are produced as prototypes, yet production will commence in the near future with four color options. via: gizmag
