If you want a set of speakers to match your MacBook Air, then check out the thin boombox.

Measuring a half a millimeter thick (thinner than credit cards), the speaker design from Hannes Harms, a masters candidate at the Royal College of Art, uses sustainable manufacturing methods, design boom reports.

with acid-etching, the sheet of stainless steel is cut and engraved extremely precisely, allowing for 100% recyclability due to its extractive process. the shape of the product also allows for efficient shipping, enabling the use of envelope style packaging. once purchased, the user would assemble the speaker by bending the metal along pre-scored lines.
