How speakers work

Jacob O’Neal makes animated infographics on his site, Animagraffs, that show how things work. A recent one that caught my attention shows how loud speakers work.

Below is an example of part of the Animagraffs on speakers, but you need to see the full sequence to appreciate how he breaks down the complex technical processes into a visual learning experience.

There are only about ten of these Animagraffs on the site, which isn’t surprising because of how much research and work they take to produce. Other interesting ones are about how a car engine works, what happens inside a jet engine,  how to Moonwalk (the dance not the space activity), and the biology of tarantulas (not for the faint of heart).
