3D Printed iPad Sound Deflector

I’ve been ferreting around looking for new project ideas for 3D printing with my year 9 students and where better to look for inspiration than Thingiverse? Ok this “research” has spawned a few ideas… But more of that later… But I did come across an intriguing device to fit onto an iPad. This device designed by “tomlombardi” clips over the speaker grid on the rear of the iPad and redirects the sound forwards. I was a little sceptical about the idea but thought I would give it a go… So I downloaded the file http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:16140 and printed it out…. Amazing results… The sound is most definitely redirected towards the front, it sounds louder and clearer and of course with the iPad on a stand to watch video or listen to music there is probably a little less sound disturbance for others in the room.

Anyway that’s deflected me away from doing some proper work… Suppose I had better get back to it.
