Still searching for that special gift for that hard-to-please someone on your list? Kathy found the answer at the 4th Avenue Street Fair in Tucson: iHorns!
Frank Falk takes cow horns and turns them into amplifiers for cell phones with speakers on the bottom. The sound from my $20 cow horn iHorn fills my office and I love that it’s such a low-tech solution. No batteries, no cords or cables, just a good old bovine horn.
Here’s a short video showing how iHorns work starting with antique phonograph horns.
Frank says, “If you like simplicity, old-school, retro and re-purposed, iHorns are probably for you.” In keeping with his preference for the old ways of doing things, Frank doesn’t have a website. You can see a few examples of the iHorns he’s made on instagram and on facebook, and you can contact him via email to order yours at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell him “The Bellydancer sent me.” He’ll know what that means. 😉
