Porsche engineers a new audio system

Unique design embeds speakers inside control knobs.

Pro-Idee

We've seen everything from toasters to coffee makers developed by Porsche Design, so it's always nice when they come out with something that's a little farther along on the high-tech evolutionary scale. And the Porsche Audio System fits that bill, at least where design is concerned.

What makes it different are the three dials that control the volume, AM/FM radio, and other functions, which are hollow for a good reason: There's a speaker in the middle of each one, in a 1.5-inch cone, complementing the 3-inch subwoofer in the back, SlashGear says. A separate dock accommodates an iPod or other MP3 player. Topping it all off is an acrylic finish that has the appearance of black glass, and even a remote that looks good.
