Cool speakers from around the world

Anyone can use boring old speakers, so why not shake things up with one of these unique alternatives.

All you have to do is get the scissors and glue out, and follow the included instructions. Patience may be required, but before you know it you will have your very own home made speaker unit. Crafty.

The Princeton Paper Speaker range is currently available in Japan for 1,980 Yen, which is US$20.

United Kingdom: British made, the Ferguson Hill ‘Horn Speaker’ is definitely a more sophisticated speaker choice. The imposing unit is made of tough plastic, and stands about 5ft tall by about 3ft wide. Beyond its vast size, the speaker is also highly efficient, pumping out a great sound while using just a low five watts of power.

You can get the horn for a steep $16,000, and that’s not including the required sub you'll also need.

Star Wars R2-D2 Speakers

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.
