Paper Speaker Demystifies Electronics
The world is packed with electronics yet many people haven't the slightest idea how the devices work they depend on every day. Hidden away behind shiny casings, electronics often fail to inspire inquisitive curiosity.

Product designer Coralie Gourguechon wants to change that. She strips electronic devices down to their bare necessities to visualize how they work. Together with two palls she created a DIY Arduino run cardbox digital camera. Her latest project is an audio speaker that fits on an A4 paper.

She calls it an anatomical chart because it displays the normally hidden innards of the speaker in a comprehensible  manner. The neatly placed components connected with lines of conductive ink are accompanied by symbols explaining their functionality. A part of the paper folds in to a cone functioning as a mechanical amplifier and on/off button.
