The Kindle Fire may be a latecomer to the tablet PC party but it looks like it has caught up with its competitors. However, one basic flaw that plagues the media player performance of all tablet PCs is the fact that most of them feature speakers away from the display which means that when they are placed flat on a surface, the sound quality dramatically diminishes. Created specially for the Kindle Fire, the SOOT Acoustic Kickstand from designer John Whaley looks to eliminate this bugging problem by offering a simple solution that doesn’t require the shell of the device to be altered in any way.
The SOOT Acoustic Kickstand basically props the tablet into an angle which offers the best display viewing angle to the user while the chamber that is created at the back of the device allows the sound produced by the ill-placed speakers to be reflected back to the user.
By simply playing cleverly with the acoustics instead of adding an additional accessory to boost sound, users can help the device save precious processing power as well as battery charge. The SOOT Acoustic Kickstand for the Kindle Fire also serves as a handy protective case and the stand allows the Kindle Fire to be placed in a number of orientations which can make viewing videos on the tablet a better experience as well.
