As wonderful a gadget the iPad is, using it while your daughter is singing in the next room (for example) might be a challenge. Regardless if you are trying to watch a music video or to take a sneak peak of your favorite TV show, you might experience problems with the sound levels.
But an innovative Kickstarter team discovered that if users cupped their hand over the back, the sound produced was greatly intensified. So they decided to use this little observation they made to create a sound enhancing technology for the iPad.
They designed a very simple cup looking accessory made out of plastic that can be attached to the edges of the tablet. Instead of all the sound being propagated into the environment, the cup will redirect it towards your ears. And it actually works, so by using the technology nicknamed The Amplifier you will add 10 decibels to the sound levels of your tablet.
The Amplifier could also be a very fun thing for children as it comes in six different and vivid colors Ė red, green, blue, orange and the classic black and white.
If you are interested in the idea and you think you might benefit from it, you can help the company behind the project, BiteMyApple, raise its $10,000 funding goal. To do so, head on to their official Kickstarter page and order your Amplifier for just $25 a piece. Itís certainly not a professional speaker, but itís an easy and cheap way of getting more sound when you need it.
