Turn any flat surface into a speaker

The Nimzy Vibro Max promises to work on any hard platform

Now this is something for the dedicated audiophile: What if you could turn any flat surface into a speaker?

The "Nimzy Vibro Max" promises to do just that, by reproducing sound through vibrations spread across any flat platform made of a hard substance such as metal, plastic, wood or glass. The idea has been tried before, but GadgetCentre says the cube-shaped Vibro Max has an integrated amplifier that's more powerful than previous models. Perhaps it's yet another technology that can be incorporated into our campaign for wireless home entertainment.
