Headphones made of cardboard - The Strut

Headphones made of cardboard

Switzerland’s art focused Zimoun Studio have built a pair of headphones made of cardboard, cotton balls and dc-motors. Noisey spoke to one of Zimoun’s assistants:

“The beats are constantly generated by the motors, the interplay between the ball, the wire and the cardboard, its friction, tension and vibration,” said Ulf Kallscheidt, an assistant to Zimoun in the city of Bern. “So, in that sense, the beats are getting generated by the materials themselves.”
