Amplio is the portable, compact sound amplifier for your smartphone that evokes the timeless aesthetics of classic radios, but does not need wires, batteries or electricity. The Amplio catches the sound from the phone speakers and amplifies it through its cone shaped interior, adding a stereo effect that makes the sound come alive. Amplio is non-electric, so does not need to be charged or plugged in. It is made from bamboo, a sustainable material which grows three times faster than wood. The designers were inspired by the minimalist classic designs of old radios, to create a modern, desirable object that works with many smartphones, so you can update your phone and still use it. Help make Amplio a reality on Kickstarter.
