Yamaha has developed a prototype speaker that's made of cloth and just 1 millimeter thick. The prototype speaker, which is on display at the Ceatec exhibition in Chiba, Japan, this week, is made of nonwoven cloth and a metallized film, said Kunimasa Muroi, general manager of Yamaha's Center for Materials and Components Technologies (pictured).
