Picture of coconut headphones
For my entry into the laser-cutter competition, I decided to make a pair of coconut headphones. It took me about 2-3 hours to make, and it cost about $15 AUD.

Please comment and vote.

To get the coconuts smooth, let them on a aquarium with fishes like ancistrus. They will eat all the fiber outside the shell.

but wouldn't that rot the wood?
I don't know why but the wood will not rot. I have coconuts on my aquarium for years now.

that's strange, but cool. I'll have to put the one a screwed up in my tank.
if you want to let the coconuts in your tank, you can had javamoss. It's not necessary to boil it to remove tannins. You can do a search in google with the keywords "aquarium coconuts" or ask me if you want more details.
leon finally you did something you said your going to

I would suggest adding some foam over the speakers to keep them hidden, and also some around the edge of the coconut, to make it more comfortable, Great Idea though, Castaway Tech Much?
