Remember the big, boxy chrome ghetto blasters that dominated the street music scene in the 1980s? If you owned one, you loved it. If you didn’t, now’s your chance. Say hello to The Wooden Boombox ($250,00).
Combining the old school design with modern technology, the Wooden Boombox is a portable music player built into a beautiful custom-designed and laser engraved wooden case. Each box is crafted of Koa ply engraved with care in Hawaii, and then hand built in North Carolina, USA. The sound is pumped through a 15Wx2 amplifier via Bluetooth or a 3.5mm aux input and projected through two 3″ full range speakers, with power coming from a rechargeable 12V 2200 mAh battery with 15+ Hours of wireless playtime on a single charge. Each variant of the Wooden Boombox is created by a different artist in limited runs, so you’d better hurry if you want one. Dimensions are 9″ x 6″ x 3″ and a weight of roughly 2 pounds. Take that 20 pound ghetto blasters! via
