Before iPhones , mp3 players, and Pandora hit the scene, boomboxes were the instrument of choice for breakdancers, house partiers, and anyone looking to pump up their favorite beats. Now, thanks to Meninos , you can add just the right amount of 90′s style to your bedroom with their Boombox Pillow Set. Complete with a center analog console with tape deck and dials and a set of left and right speakers, these pillows will help rock you to sleep each night. The pillows are constructed with a printed microfiber fabric filled with polyester that is safe to wash without worry of the images fading. MC Hammer pants and six “D” size batteries not included. Pick them up individually or in a set from Meninos ’ online store.
Today we have another cool idea that is coming to fruition through the Kickstarter program. The Berlin Boombox is a portable stereo speaker made of cardboard with a built-in stereo amplifier. The integrated amplifier is what sets this cardboard speaker apart from others that are on the market. The sound quality might not be the highest quality but as of right now the price is set at only $50.00. It comes in an easily assembled kit consisting of the die-cut cardboard structure, electronic parts, and batteries. You can use the boombox with the iPhone, iPod or any other MP3 player. The project is running on Kickstarter for another 4 weeks and you make a donation to support it here .
