The next time you hold a shell up to your ear, you may hear your boss talking rather than the sounds of the ocean. The Shellphone is exactly what it sounds like, a shell that's been fashioned into a loudspeaker for the iPhone.
There are no power adapters and no batteries, just the natural shape of the Whelk shell to amplify the iPhone's speaker. WAAM Industries is raising funds on Kickstarter to put Shellphones into production.
You're probably wondering what makes the Shellphone worth $60 when you can just wander down to the beach and gather some shells of your own. There is actually some craftsmanship going into the docks. Each one has to be cut by hand, shaped, and fitted to hold an iPhone and provide optimum sound.
