Very interesting. For my part, I prefer the phyllotactic design used here in the spherical form factor. If ever brought to market, I would hope that the option be provided to disable the lighting/music syncing for when one just wants to listen at night without visual distractions.

In any case, thanks for showcasing this.

Speaker design is also about sound. Was there any audio engineering in this project?

The ultimate speaker would look this nice, but also take advantage of 3D printing to create internal baffles and cavities, and external ports. Anyone familiar with high quality sound reproduction knows the challenges of creating internals, and that this is where the sound magic is made.

In my opinion, the ultimate use of 3D printing for sound would be to create superior internals to traditional speaker manufacturing.


Acoustics were a major consideration in the design and they sound great. I was told some of the acoustical properties could not have been achieved without 3D printing which allows for certain materials and design properties.

I fairly confident that the complexity that can be achieved with 3D printing that could not be done with traditional manufacturing may result in amazing acoustical products and instruments.
