Opus is a passive amplifier & stand for Apple products. Chicago, IL

Based in the West Loop of Chicago, Innovation Factory, with their mission to help Chicagoland develop exciting new products, has developed ‘Opus’, and have launched their Kickstarter campaign, and raised over 10% of their goal in the first day of the launch.


The two halves of Opus hold devices firmly in place at an ideal viewing angle, turning the meager sound from an iPad, iPhone, or iPod into a room filling resonance. For portability, the two halves use magnets to snap and stay together.


Opus is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter. Find out more information here: . Opus and Innovation Factory's additional in-house products can be found at

Opus does not use electronics instead the curvature of its design allows it to catch, redirect, and amplify the sound. The different types of plastic will offer aesthetic difference, but the sound difference should not be noticeable to the naked ear. Hope that helps!

Thanks for sharing! Very exciting to see more projects like this coming out of Chicago!

Really interesting. So the sound amplications happeed because of the design of the stand itself and not any electronics? I see that it's offered in different types of plastic. Are their any accoustic advantages to one over the others? Good luck!
