Speaker Buddies lend your music a slightly disturbing child like voice

Rejecting the old notion which says that children should be seen but not heard, British designer Alex Underwood's Speaker Buddies turn your hi-fi into a vision of child like innocence. While they lack the soft feminine curves of Ross Lovegrove's sexy Muon, the Speaker Buddies look suspiciously like Kenny from South Park clutching his knees as if trying to withdraw from the world. Except instead of Kenny's deeply set face, there's a speaker buried inside that hood. Let's just hope that the spirit of Kenny doesn't get killed each time you crank the music up too loud.

Made mostly from polystyrene, Speaker Buddies are currently just a design concept.
