I’m not sure if these speakers should be categorized as hi-tech or lo-tech. Having cardboard serve as a major component of any object screams lo-tech. However these portable speakers are a modern invention by all standards. If you’re looking for the coolest iPod accessory to set you apart from the crowd these MUJI cardboard speakers would definitely do the trick. The cardboard enclosure collapses flat for easy storage and transportation in the included pouch.
The Japanese phrase Mujirushi Ryohin means No Brand Goods. Definitely big in Japan, MUJI has gained fans worldwide with their innovative use of simple materials. Their products are environmentally friendly and beautifully simple and functional.
