The ghetto blaster has evolved and become more portable – as the Reppo II Boom Box Backpack.
Yes, if the music from your mobile isnt annoying enough people, you can slip on the Reppo II to do some serious aural damage. The black patches in the image above are full-range speakers, with an amplifier (and I presume connectivity) also built-in.
But you don’t need to panic just yet – unless you live in Berlin – as this is just a functioning prototype right now. It’s the work of Berlin industrial design student Joonas Saaranen, who is probably avoiding the anger of passers-by on the Ku’damm at this very moment.
