Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to scrounge in the kitchen and sofa cushions for these items:
A penny (a shiny one)
Some aluminum foil
Some tape (like clear packaging tape)
A paper plate
Add a 3.5" stereo mini-plug from an old pair of headphones to the above recipe and you'll have the workings of a high-def (but decidedly low-tech) speaker system for that iPod, PC, or any other device that outputs sound through a 3.5" connection.
This is the coolest low-to-no-budget hack I've seen in a long time. These things, when completed, may not look the best, but try it today and see if the sound fits your bill. Invite some friends over and pump up the jams. The music will flow, but nobody will believe that paper plates and other junk could be transformed into a decent speaker.
Editor's Note: After review, it's apparent that this project is, indeed, a hoax. We apologize for publishing this under the pretense of plausibility, and assure you that we will strive harder to check our future posts and projects for signs of fraudulence.
