It seems that my new hobby these days is to find the ultimate enhancing gadget for the IPhone. Recently, I purchased a Lego case for the IPhone. Although, it appeals to my Lego enthusiasm, it doesn't bring much protection for the device itself. I can stick it to the side of my Lego house however.
Anyway, today I'll be talking about the Bone Horn amplification system for the IDevices.
If you've spent enough time at your grandparents, or hung out at your local museum, you may have encountered the old gramophones. Without knowing it, our ancestors were environmentally friendly with the first incarnation of record players. Gramophones were powered via a wind up mechanism. The gramophone arm was equipped with a horn-like device which would amplify what the needle would play on the record.
Well, this is exactly what the Bone Horn does for your IDevice. Manufactured in silicon, (at least, that's what it feels like), the bone horn slips on the bottom of your IPhone and that's all there is to it. You still have access to the microphone and the home button. Crank up the tunes and you have yourself an amplified sound system. The bone horn folk boast that you can get 13 DB more sound from your device while using their system. Will this device catch on? Who knows, but it looks pretty nifty and does increase the volume.
