These Speakers Are Thinner Than A Piece of Paper

A new material as thin as “thick sandwich wrap” makes these bizarre speakers possible.

Self professed tinkerer Richard Haberkern is attempting to make paper thin speakers the norm. Using Polyvinylidene Fluoride Piezoelectric Film (PVDF), a new material as thin as “thick sandwich wrap” covered in electrically conductive coating that’s able to transmit audio and video, the California inventor hopes to experiment with his prototype further, and see just how big he and fellow tinkerers can dream with it. Because the material is pretty difficult to manufacture, he’s currently running a Kickstarter campaign to fund his experiments.
