The Greenhouse effect

I’m happy to announce a limited edition Bot we’ve been working on since this morning over a bowl of cereal.  I would love to tell you what kind of cereal, but I totally don’t want us to get sued.  Let’s just call it ‘Raptain Runch’ and leave it at that.

Vine videos use snack food to reenact Mario Brothers game

Artist finds pretty creative way to play with food and use new social media platform

The dog days of summer are here, which means we’re all working extra hard at finding ways to kill time till we can get out of the office.

Luckily for us, Hunter Harrison has decided to do something a bit more creative with his time than scanning — and re-scanning — the lists of Reddit and Buzzfeed: he’s created a series of Vine videos based on the Super Mario Bros. video game using nothing more than a bunch of food from around the house.

Specifically, Mario is played by a red snack fruit, and the world around him is created from graham crackers, Cheez-Its, cucumbers, marshmallows, pretzels, cheerios, and more.

The result can best be described as cotton candy for the brain.

Apple supposedly working on self-adjusting, noise-cancelling ear buds

Technology would be a little more discrete than some of the other noise-cancelling headphones on the market nowadays

As much as we love the fact that our ultraportable speakers can be taken anywhere, there are some instances where you can’t fill a room with your favorite song. The library for instance. On a plane also. These places unfortunately require the use of headphones.

One of the industry standards is Apple’s earbud set. Small, clean, and simple, they don’t cost much nor do they require any sort of maintenance. Their only downfall, when compared to other popular sets like, say, Beats by Dre, is the fact that because they’re so tiny, they do allow some side noise in.

Apple is aware of this product’s shortcoming and is apparently getting ready to do something about it, having recently filed a patent application for a pair of headphones that adjust their output based on how they fit in a person’s ears.

Say Hello to the Boombotix Artists Series

 SketOne, Uberpup, and DGPH put a graphic assault on the Boombot speaker

Boombots

This winter we are excited to be launching a new incarnation of Boombots: the Artist Series. By teaming up with a group of designers from around the globe, the Artist Series has given a brand new look to ultraportable speakers. UberPup (London) incorporated graphic mayhem to her piece to exemplify her propensity towards mass chaos. DGPH (Argentina) rolled out an entire set of post-modern abstract work in three amazing palettes. Sket One (Los Angeles) delivered a pad print design called Mr. Grimey that completely put a new face on wireless audio. For a product that originated from urban vinyl toy design, the Artist Series salutes the design roots of the product.

The Artist Series Boombots come in Bluetooth enabled versions (UberPup and Sket One designs) and wired models.  Housed in ruggedized ABS shells and featuring an integrated clip, Boombots allow your music to be taken with you, anytime, anywhere.  Boombots include medical-grade rechargeable batteries, dynamic frequency response, and a no-matter-what one-year warranty.  The Bluetooth models retail for $79.99 and wired models for $54.99.  The Artist Series is available through boombotix.com and select retailers.

A portion of all sales will go towards the hungry artists.  Help us feed them.
