Watch: McDonald’s Redesigned Drink Trays Turn Into Smartphone Boomboxes
By Kylie Woon, 31 Jul 2017
McDonald’s has designed a drink tray that doubles as a smartphone speaker and stand, meaning you have a handy way to enjoy some tunes while eating a burger.
The ‘McBoombox’ was created in celebration of the 22nd birthday of the McFlurry—which is a Canadian creation—and is a collaboration between McDonald’s Canada, the University of Waterloo’s Audio Research Group and design studio Stacklab.
The drink tray-cum-sound amplifier boosts smartphone sound by 101% by using 10-sided speaker openings with reflective surfaces that channel sound much more effectively than cardboard, which absorbs it.
Simply flip over a drink tray, unfold the speakers, slot your smartphone into the McBoombox and enjoy your music. Watch the video below!
