UPDATE: V4 fixes an overhang issue at with the bottom of the bunny silhoutte - it is not perfectly flat so should print without requiring trimming of overhang poops.

Passive amplifier for your Microsoft Surface! Clip these ears on to your Surface (they should point OUTWARDS, not upwards - imagine a lop eared bunny).

For Surface RT, print at 100% scale. For Surface Pro, print at 150% scale (Thanks IcePickTony for the Surface Pro hint!)

Recharge them by placing them close to a carrot overnight.

Dimensions: 27x47x87mm (for each ear)


Designed with OpenSCAD. Printed on Replicator 2 using medium resolution, 2 shells, 10% infill.

Print 1 of each part - one is the left ear, the other is the right ear.

I printed this on my Rep2. I up-scaled it 150%. Now it fits my Surface Pro (much thicker than the Surface) perfectly. Though with the upscalling, it does look a bit like Elephant ears. lol. Works well though.

is this printable on a cupcake? What are the dimensions? VERY excited to see this!

Added dimensions to the description above. The longest side is 87mm, which shouts fit nicely in the cupcake's 100x100mm build footprint.
