Ghetto Blaster Backpacks

The Boompack is a Wearable Multimedia Entertainment Unit for the Streets

— January 15, 2013 — Tech
The modern version of the 1980s boombox-on-shoulder practice is replaced by the Boompack by Givingshape Design. Until this, the focus on personal media players has meant that there hasn't really been a great alternative to the ghetto blaster, in terms bringing music to groups of friends outdoors.

This is a hi-tech knapsack measuring roughly 50 centimeters by 40 centimeters in width. It integrates an iPhone dock into its core, a remote control into its strap and an LCD screen into its front, above its impressive speakers. More amps can be found up and down the sides of the hard shell sack, yet the most amazing feature introduces a visual dimension as well. The Boompack's built-in pico projector enables you to turn any concrete wall into a giant screen for music videos and more.
Trend Themes
1. Wearable Multimedia Entertainment - The Boompack introduces a new trend of wearable backpacks that integrate personal media players and projectors for a unique multimedia experience on the go.
2. Outdoor Group Music Experience - The Boompack caters to the trend of bringing music to groups of friends outdoors, offering an alternative to personal media players.
3. Integration of Iphone Dock and Projector - The Boompack demonstrates a trend of integrating iPhone docks and pico projectors into backpack designs, providing a convenient and portable media solution.
Industry Implications
1. Consumer Electronics - The consumer electronics industry can capitalize on the trend of wearable multimedia entertainment by developing innovative backpack designs that integrate media players and projectors.
2. Music and Entertainment - The music and entertainment industry can explore opportunities in outdoor group music experiences by partnering with backpack manufacturers to create unique audiovisual products.
3. Mobile Technology - The mobile technology industry can leverage the integration of iPhone docks and projectors into backpacks, offering consumers a convergent solution for media consumption and projection.
