The most awesomest jambox ever.

The most awesomest jambox ever. It has to be seen to be understood, so I won't try to explain it for you. Best to let it's creator do that. And don't forget to check out the making-of feature as well.

Without even reading anything - have to make the first comment that that is sweet. Looks like the dashboard from my 82 Honda Acura.

That is cool. I like the de-mister and the 8-track.

That is terrific.

You know what I want to see? I want to see a Transformers movie, only the Transformers are all made out of plywood and late 70s/early 80s used car parts, and they do battle by breakdance-fighting to early hiphop!



I'd watch that movie.

A friend of mine will be receiving this link shortly. I expect by tomorrow morning he will have built his own much larger and more complicated version. Of titanium, or some exotic metal. From parts currently strewn around his workshop.

I can't wait.

NINETY-TWO POUNDS???

Well, if you're a superhero you could shoulder it... the Thing would look rockin' carrying this down Yancy Street, hehehe...

stenseng, I'd watch that movie too.

That's pretty darn cool.

Q: why aren't people like this running our world?
A: they have better things to do with their time.

Everyone knows with true analog equipment weight=quality.

Excellent touches:
-Cupholder
-Blender
-8 track

It's the little things that count.

"The only real drawback to the Toyota cup holder is that you can't use the 8-track player while it's in use..."


NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

I kind of just smiled and moved on at first, but going through all the options really kills. The 120VAC outlet. The cupholder. The video of the antennae coming out.

Yes.

It will even power an official NASCAR Jeff Gordon blender!

A portable block party, if you ask me! But really, friends, what do we expect from the man who brought us Wanky the Safety Cat?

rock the house!
I had a pathetic red-headed stepchild of this set up in my room for a little bit, but never would I have dreamed up such a lovely creation, let alone make it REAL.

I would play with the antennae all day long.

the only thing cooler than this boombox is the Star Trek IV reference made above by DU.

This guy is an Evil Genius. Meet his other creation: Wanky the Saftey Cat.

doh...that's supposed to be safety.

So, "jambox". Where and by whom is that actually used? Second time in a week here, and it's freaking me out.

Boombox.

Boombox.

completely awesome. all it needs now is a few horns.
posted by mrgrimm at 11:59 AM on June 12, 2007


Come on. The cup holder CLEARLY BLOCKS the 8-track player. And there is NO 8-TRACK TAPE for demo purposes.

I demand a refund.

Mash go on that jambox, cortex.

You had me at the auto-extend antennas.

A cup holder and an 8-track. Baby, it just doesn't get any better than this.

As the first person to tell cortex that it was a jambox (and being summarily made fun of by several people for it), I thank you, ninjew, for using the term. And for the link of course since it's a freakin' awesome jambox, but, yeah, whatever. JAMbox, mickey fickey.

I grew up with jambox. Never heard boombox til later 80s, but I no linguist.
posted by mrgrimm at 1:31 PM on June 12, 2007


I was sorta referencing Meatwad as well with the 'jambox'. Also I just like the word.

Ninety-two pounds of plywood and car parts joined together as an homage to the homemade car-battery boomboxes used by first-generation break dancers....

Car-battery boomboxes jamboxes?

You know who else liked to jamboxes?
posted by NationalKato at 2:21 PM on June 12, 2007


I'm happy. My '77 Datsun's nervous. But I'm happy.

It's like how lolcats have made me look at my cat differently. I fear this will make me look at my car differently.

BOOMBOX. BOOMBOX, YOU UNCLEAN HEATHENS.

This thread is so going to go wiggum over that. BOOMBOX, DAMNIT.

On that we can agree.

Surely there's room for at least one fleshlight receptacle on that beast.
