About this project

Hello Kickstarter! We love to share our ideas and goals with this project. With your support, we will be able to share our ideas on how to create more meaningful relationships with digital products.

ARKCANARY II is an analog acoustic speaker for the iPhone 4. This speaker amplifies existing iPhone 4 speaker. Much like our successful ARKHIPPO I standing iPhone 4 cover, users simply slide an iPhone 4 into the ARKCANRY II for use. Our brand goal is to create fun products for existing digital devices. There’s simply no reason why smart digital products can’t be more humorous, emotional, and engaging.

We, at HaA Design, started this project by simply playing around with different materials. With our core business being devoted to the designing of technically sound mobile products, our hunger for playful and imaginative exploration has been left unmet. By stepping away from our computers and exploring various materials (paper, foam, etc…), we tested our concepts on their ability to amplify sound from the iPhone 4. We were amazed by the wide range of amplification properties of everyday found materials! By simply comparing our findings from the simple mock ups and then simulating their forms in 3D, we were able to yield an undeniably functional and fun accessory. We are currently working with manufacturer in Korea to create an affordable, yet environmentally friendly product. We want to make sure our products are safe for our children, ourselves, and mother earth. With your support, we will be able to create a quality mold for mass production. ARKCANARY II will be sold in global market in conjunction with other ARK products and/or by itself. ARKCANARY II will be sold at retail price of $13.00 (not including iPhone 4) ☺
