The company behind it calls it a “post-apocalyptic communication device, painstakingly assembled from bits and pieces of what its maker could find.”

The technology behind it is simple and elegant. It uses a German acoustic fiber horn along with an Apple Bluetooth speaker at the bottom. It can pair both via Bluetooth and a 3.5mm jack at the bottom to any smartphone.
