grammoI love modern technology as much as I love vintage items. When the two come together in a cool and useful design, then I fall in love. Such is the case with the iPad Grammophone I recently found at Restoration Hardware.

Of all of the speaker systems I have seen for the iPod and iPad – many of which I have featured on this blog – the iPad Grammophone is by far the coolest and the perfect mix of old world charm adapted for the modern world.

About the iPad Grammophone from Restoration Hardware: “In the late 1800s, Thomas Edison introduced the phonograph, and just like that, life had a soundtrack. Our Gramophone borrowed the iconic speaker horn from those early machines to amplify sound with the power of pure physics. Simply set your iPad® in the solid walnut dock, and the metal horn will boost its volume by three to four times, with no need for electricity. Just don’t tell Mr. Edison.”

I love that the iPad Grammophone is a simple way to boost the sound of an iPad and would be a great way to flood music into my booth at Brimfield in May. Wait, didn’t I tell you that we are doing Brimfield this year? It’s true – more details to follow.
