The Amplifier, or Enunciator

Robert Linn theorized that a loudspeaker shaped like a human head, containing a mouth and nose cavity similar to that of a person, would produce sounds that were of a higher quality and more "pleasing and properly modulated" than a regular loudspeaker would. So he created (and patented in 1927) what he called the Amplifier or Enunciator.


The resemblance to a sex doll has to be coincidental, because they weren't invented until after World War II. (The claim that Hitler invented the first sex doll is apparently a hoax).

Cant imagine why this didn’t catch on. Sure, it would look weird on a shelf, but if a guy is bored and lonely on a Saturday night...

Looks like a combo of the Bride of Frankenstein and Jan In The Pan.
