There are actually 5 different pop-ups in the book:
For the "Planetarium" pop-up, you use a small light to project constellations onto the ceiling. (I tried using my Smartphone, but it kept on turning off.)
For the speaker, you put your Smartphone into the pop-up, and a mega-phone-like structure amplifies the sound.
Kudos to whoever designed these intricate pop-ups. I really enjoyed trying them out. A lot of fun!

That was a lot of negative for one page..... EVERY OTHER page is AMAZING!! Definitely buying at least one more as a Xmas gift
• Excellent concept and construction
• Attractively designed
• Planetarium is well crafted and fun
• Decoder and Calendar are a bit more simplistic than the other items
• Questionable use of "speaker" for the one pop up
• Spiralgraph is challenging to use
• Somewhat lacking a sense of cohesiveness of popups included
