The Air We Breathe-The Chicago Clean Air Design Challenge

'The Air We Breathe-The Chicago Clean Air Design Challenge'
2011 Call For Entries

"The Air We Breathe is a regional design competition focusing on clean air in two of Chicago’s most affected neighborhoods- Pilsen and Little Village. Poor air quality is an issue that affects all Chicagoans. However, residents of Pilsen and Little Village live below two coal powered plants that regularly emit lead and other toxins into the air. High rates of asthma and other air-quality illnesses are pressing concerns for the residents of these neighborhoods and for much of Chicago..."

ARKCANARY II: Analog Acoustic iPhone 4 Speaker

Sang Lee, founder of ARKWHAT, is reaching out via the Kickstarter Program to fund his newest creation, the ARKCANARY II. The ARKCANARY II is an analog acoustic speaker designed for the iPhone 4. This megaphone-style speaker amplifies the existing iPhone 4 speaker by allowing users to simply slide their device into the cradle. The speaker also acts as a kickstand, allowing your iPhone to sit up and be seen. No moving parts. No batteries or outside power source required. The old school megaphone does all the work. The kicker is, Sang Lee proposes to retail these gems at $13 each. Yes, that's thirteen US dollars! You can't even buy a Venti from Starbucks for 13-clams.

P.S. They will be available in six colors, as well.

Do yourself a huge favor, stroll over to ARKWHATs Kickstarter and donate...because I really, really need to get one in every color!
