Televisions, phones, and computers continually get sleeker and more efficient with each iteration and your average Joe will soon be able to act as a space tourist and own a car that drives itself. Yet, despite what seems like remarkable technological progress all around us, some technologies have advanced only incrementally over the years. Take audio speakers for example.

Resonado, a student-led startup out of the University of Notre Dame, is seeking to change this.…
