Lifehack: A Bowl of Sound

For those of you who keep track of these things, this post is late. Like, squeezing in under the wire, late. It has just been that kind of week, you know? Which might also explain why this post is a little short and sweet- but nonetheless useful! This post will not apply to 75% of our readers (who probably already know this trick), but for 25% of you, this post is going to be a game. changer.

Coralie and I are both big lovers of music and having a soundtrack to accompany most of life’s moments. But, what do you do when your phone is the only sound system at your disposal? Tech gurus recommend never cranking your phones speakers to full tilt, so what are you supposed to do when you need a little bit more sound? Enter, science!

Thanks to sound waves being amplified by concave surfaces, you will be amazed at how much more volume your device will exude when you put it… in a bowl. Or a glass. Or any kind of vessel will fit your phone and is angled such that the sound waves will amplify and exit. I’ve seen several other lifehacks involving more intricate methods of the same principle (involving paper towel rolls or Pringles cans) but bowls and glasses are pretty ubiquitous- which means that you can take advantage of science almost anywhere!

Some bowls/glasses work better than others, so be aware. But, check out this video, iffen you don’t believe me!

Did you know about this trick? Are you all about life’s soundtrack? As always, let us know!
