The FYLM Foldable Speaker was designed to be the ultimate portable sound system. Using recently developed film speaker technology that’s less than a quarter millimeter thick, the FYLM is able to fit into any pocket. The designers of this sleek looking prototype, Design Affairs Studio, have keep the particular type of film speaker a secret, but it looks very similar to Warwick Audio Technologies.
When in use the speaker locks into a triangular position, but can be folded nearly flat for transportation – the widest section being the 3.5 mm headphone jack. However, as with all audio devices, the true test is in the sound quality. The designers claim the speaker offer a “full and rich directional sound”, which at least matches what has been said about film speaker technology in general.
While the press images show a wide range of color options, don’t expect FYLM speakers to be available any time soon. Design Affairs Studio specializes in tantalizingly functional concepts, not large scale unit production. So a third party is going to need to step in before you see these at a store near you.
