Artist Dan Das Mann* has created a wearable Full Party System (and instant Performance Art device) called the Funn Pack™ with loudspeakers, smoke machines, a bubble machine, mirror balls AND FREAKING LAZERS, all battery-powered, self contained and wearable. (yep, this Halloween, I'm dressing up as HIM)
*of L.A.'s BIG ART LABS, LLC so you know he's a professional. Also, absolutely NOT related to Dat Boi

His Youtube channel has video of the vehicle-sized prototype. Groovy.

I am disappointed that there's no harmonica in evidence.

All fun and games until someone spills a drink on him and short circuits his trousers....

Looks like something Rob Cockerham would have once made.

Imagine if you will, a cacophony of light and sound that is the foundation of a generations music. Like the Pied Piper before him, a man named Dan 'The' Mann will enter that scintillating world of dream coats and advanced technological marvels that surpass a mere Jukebox.

Wearing all that, how does he engage in the inevitable bar fight that will occur when a bunch of drunk rednecks (or whoever) don't like him in "their" bar?

I wouldn't want to fight that guy. He's teetering on the verge of supervillainy. Can you rule our the possibility that he's got a panic button that will leave an attacker deaf and blinded by both smoke and lasers? Think of just how many ways there are of weaponizing a bubble machine...

It looks like it built around a pretty standard external frame hiking backpack so almost all the weight is actually being supported on his hips. 50 pounds with a decent hiking backpack isn't really that bad although obviously all the disco balls sticking out make him incredibly cumbersome. My guess is that even with a nice battery though the sound system nukes the run time on that battery fast.

It probably sucks trying to get it through security checks as well.

I'm not seeing the connection between the Funn Pack and Powerpuff Girls, but good for you! I love HIM.

I hope he wears earplugs.

His Facebook page has a video of the wearable in action. I've no idea how to link a fb video on mobile, so here's a link to the page itself.

This guy, or someone like him, is on the bus with me every time I ride.

Yikes, I was gonna say this has got no cake on International Dance Party which is similarly self-contained but noted that der Funn Pack loads in an additional 400W of audio.
