Scientists create flat speakers

PNI, a Korean research firm, announced yesterday that it has developed a technology for mass production of flat speakers that are as flexible as a piece of fabric, reports Joong Daily.

“These speakers are thin transparent sheets that move like cloth. They can be hung on walls, draped over an object or hung in a frame. One only needs to cut out a piece of the “cloth” and connect it to an amplifier with a wire.”


I couldn’t find a picture of PNI’s flat flexible speakers, but here’s one from a company called NTX and an article explaining how flat-panel speakers are bringing new dimensions to sound – and decorating your living room.
