If you haven’t heard of Kickstarter yet, it’s an online threshold pledge system for funding creative projects and it’s where we found the Tembo Trucks project that we pledged to. They are portable, non-electrical silicon rubber amplifier for Apple ear buds. It’s the simplicity and low tech aspect of this product that drew our attention. The whole experience from the pledge to the delivery of the Tembo Trucks was really interesting. Now that we have had a chance to use them, will they replace a dock? no. But that is not what we expected of them. They are a unique and great option for a quick, easy and portable way to amplify sound from a portable player.
