Interesting research from Disney Research at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. It’s a speaker that can be made by a 3D printer that can be created any shape. This is basically an electrostatic speaker using a thin conductive material and an electrode plate separated by a layer of air, but made via a 3D printer.
