Researchers at Warwick University in the UK have devised a new speaker that is thin and flexible while promising to deliver crisp and clear sound. The loudspeakers could be used in public address systems like those at the train station or shopping centers.

The system is dubbed the flat, flexible loudspeaker (FFL) and actually started life as s sheet of tin foil. The design moves air as a bulk mass rather than from a point source like traditional speakers.

The speaker now uses laminate material rather than foil. The speakers could also be concealed under ceiling tiles and can be used in cars. With car applications, the design of the speakers would allow music to be heard in the back, but not in the front seat.
