A Brilliant Idea for Reusing Old iPhones as Lamps and Speakers

When people rush to snatch up the latest smartphone offerings, the older but still functional units are usually sold, given away, or, in the saddest scenario, banished to some dark corner. Ukrainian industrial designer Ivan Zhurba has another idea. His new project, the iPhone Lamp, sources its light from the flashlight feature of an iPhone, which would be slotted into the thin "arm" of the minimalist apparatus. The design also allows for a charging cable while the iPhone is in use and, as Designboom details, includes an "acoustic tunnel that amplifies the sound coming from the speaker of the iPhone."

You'll have to 3D-print it yourself though. >>
