It seems that for every one piece of electronic equipment that hits the market, there are about 100 accessories designed to help you personalize or improve it. When it comes to the iPhone, there are cases, bike mounts, and amplifiers galore, yet the public, and Kickstarter in general never seem to tire of them.
When it comes to the Bloombox, the genius can be found in its perfect combination of a simple yet versatile design. Not only does this clever device serve as both docking station and amplifier for your iPod or iPhone, it’s also a minimalist planter that can bring some much-needed greenery to your home or office.
The Bloombox amplifies sound similar to those abundant wood blocks on Kickstarter in that it’s hollow. The main difference here is the bigger amount of empty space on our design, it wasn’t the original intention though, just happened that way. The difference is about a 30 percent increase in amplified sound. It also just kinda sounds nicer too, all natural.
A 30 percent boost in volume is nothing to sneeze at. But is anything really going to grow in that shallow, plaster planter? The answer is yes! There’s a wide variety of plants that will flourish in the provided space, mainly the succulent, which are currently trending at the moment. Airplants work great too, you can also put soil in there and grow some smaller plants although they might max out around 6 months and need to be re-potted.
