“Speakers, at heart, are small devices that vibrate a larger surface, and then make that vibration rebound through an even larger box until it comes out much louder than it would be with the device alone. But there are some speaker-like products that simply put the vibration device in your hands and let you turn anything into a speaker.” – Will Greenwald, PCMag.com
