Whether you’re talking about Bluetooth Speakers built for the great outdoors or speakers that think outside the box, we’ve covered a lot of unconventional, sound-producing devices over the years. Oswalds Mill Audio Ironic Speaker is quite possibly the most unique speaker we’ve ever covered. The OMA Ironic Speaker is an open baffle type speaker cast from a special kind of iron with no enclosure with a high graphite content that, if we’re being completely honest, kind of looks like what would be created if you told a Science Fiction prop artist to create a speaker. Here’s what the OMA team had to say about it: “The unique form of the Ironic is impossible to cast using traditional pattern making methods. The molds are 3D printed in sand, and every mold is consumed/destroyed in the casting process. Every single Ironic thus requires a new, 3D printed mold to be made.This is an extremely expensive process.” This is most certainly one of the priciest speakers we’ve ever talked about, but with only 10 examples being made and it being created to the caliber it is, it’s one worth considering.

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
