The days of carrying boomboxes on the shoulder are pretty much over. Today, you might see a rebirth of boomboxes lugged around, disguised in the form of the Boombotix Boombot2 (BB2) Wireless Speaker.
Using Bluetooth wireless technology, the BB2 takes annoying cords out of the equation while still providing decent sound. The BB2 fits into the palm of your hand, and can also be attached to your backpack, purse or bike. Its best selling point has to do with its unique design, as it comes in several funkified versions like “Carbon Fiber”, the limited edition “Rasta Woodgrain” and “Camouflage.” And since the speakers are ultra-portable, they are also built to withstand the occasional drop and run-ins with inclimate weather (not big hurricanes or anything like that, though.)
