German makers Johannes Tsopanides and Johanna Spath have created a series of unique speakers that are designed by recording the information of your 33 most-played songs, then printed on a 3D printer.

What would your music taste look like as an object? Cloudspeaker is a conceptual work to create loudspeakers that reflect the music taste of their owner via 3d printing. Nowadays listening to music over the computer is common. Information on what kind of music you like can be saved, evaluated and summed up in tags. Our concept uses this information and shapes it into your individualised loudspeaker.

The tags of most played music and a 10sec frequency spectrum of the 33 favourite songs has an impact on the shape of the body. To value the tags we categorized all common music styles regarding the parameters loud-silent, calm-vivid and soft-hard on a scale from 0-10 which then parametrically build the body.

See the Cloudspeaker project description for more information.

    What a bizarre idea. I wonder how they sound? They do look cool, in a sculptural, amoebic kind of way. Combine this with the glass microbe sculptures, maybe?
