Custom 3D Printed Smartphone Amplifiers (scroll down for compatible models - chances are that your phone model made the list)

Technabob"I’ve seen lots of acoustic amplifier add-ons for smartphones, but never any that are quite as cool looking as these."

Product Design & Development Magazine: "...the future of amplification..."

Android Rundown: "These really are very beautiful designs and any of them would display a smartphone with style and aplomb."

3D Geeks:"... enjoy lessened environmental impact and a lower price point. Pizzaz!"

WHERE ARE WE?

We have a 3D printed product. 
We want to make it better and at a lower cost.
We can only do that with your help.

At 3D ThinkTank, we are designing with the intent of taking 3D printing to a whole new level, producing the most cost-effective, green, and creative approaches to mass customization. 

WHAT IS IT?

3D printed smartphone amplifiers - Symphony Shells.

3D printing technology allows Simply Amplified - a division of 3D ThinkTank - to custom make each Symphony Shell, layer by layer. 

Free from cables or batteries, Symphony Shells have defined acoustic channels that naturally amplify music from your smartphone (you can use your charger while amplifying if desired). 

Symphony Shells can be seen on our website - www.simplyamplified.com - and come in three acoustically-engineered designs: 

 URCHIN | MUREX | NAUTILUS

OUR MISSION?

Develop new ecofriendly, fully recyclable materials for 3D printing Symphony Shells.

This new material development project will equip Simply Amplified to 3D print Symphony Shells with fully recyclable materials for a lessened environmental impact and lower price point.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

3D printing is a detailed process. We have an efficient operation to build each Symphony Shell on a made-to-order basis. We do not foresee any mishaps in the production of Symphony Shells, as each design is made using the most technologically-advanced equipment available which is handled by our skilled engineers and creative crew. Should the additive manufacturing process become delayed due to unforeseen machine glitches,know that we currently have multiples of our equipment and highly value communication and will be in touch with you - our backer - every step of the way.

This Kickstarter project is to enable Simply Amplified to create a more environmentally-friendly and more affordable product line for Symphony Shells. Should R&D efforts prove to yield a less-than-satisfactory material, Symphony Shells can still be delivered using our current material options.The only variable will be the actual material used in the 3D printing process. You - our backer - will receive a Symphony Shell, regardless of the final material outcome.
