Creator Dmitry Zagga calls his own creation an iPod Ghetto Accessory, but we think it's a wonderful example of taking a mundane and common household object and using it entirely for something different. The iPod CupSpeakers are like those string and cup phones from your childhood play days, but instead of your friend on the other line, T.I. and Rhianna are calling you up...looks like an easy DIY project in the making.
This is a fun project. Four single-serving paper cups, two tooth picks (for holding cups together) + iPod with classic earbuds. The increase in volume, of course, is radiculous [sic], but hey, you get stylish iPod accessory out of nothing!
And if you have some extra cups around the house, here are some other cup 'o tech posts that might be of interest:
