These Torch Speakers Encase Your MP3 Player

Although not quite a set of premium speakers, the Torch does offer one good function: the ability to hold a small MP3 player inside of its shell. Unfortunately, it's only a mono speaker, meaning you won't get stereo sound from using one.

The upper half of the Music Torch opens up to reveal a relatively roomy compartment for your favorite portable media player. A 3.5mm jack plugs into the PMP's audio out port, for direct streaming of music to the Music Torch's speaker. Given this concept gadget's presentation as a beach buddy, this interior space no doubt keeps the moisture out when screwed shut.

The upper half of the Music Torch opens up to reveal a relatively roomy compartment for your favorite portable media player. There's room to put in an iPod Nano, but a full size Zune or iPod Touch will likely be cramped.

Whatever the case, the Music Torch is currently a concept. As a creative exercise inspired by (what else) the conical-shaped torch, we'll have to wait and see if designer mintpass has any plans to turn their idea into an actual retail product.

    They should have bundled it with a solar panel.

    If you've got a lot more money, maybe.

    The speaker looks ugly and is it even water proof because water is sand's best friend.

    I was having trouble understanding what need these were designed to fill. That is, until I saw that picture of the torch at the beach.

    Obviously it's designed to attract hot girls in bikinis.

    looks like they use MS paint to add the cone in the sand

    couple potential problems i see...
    1. water proofing seal to protect your MP3 player, from sudden rain showers through the speak on top, or from wet sand, screwing it shut might not cut it
    2. kid at home using it with real ice cream
    3. "is that a cone in your pocket, or you just happy to see me" jokes
