The Soundcruiser

THIS is much more portable than the I&I soundsystem. (…which we blogged about in 2004)

Behold The ‘SoundCruiser’ Wheelie Bag sound system!

Weighing in at around thirty kilos the Wheelie Bag ‘SoundCruiser’ is a complete, portable sound system. It’s as easy to take it on the bus as it is on Easy Jet. Each Wheelie Bag is unique. Your theme, your spec, your choice of colours.

From £750.

NB. All Wheelie Bag owners agree to meet once a year for the Annual Wheelie Bag Sound Clash.

For the Real Deal, some cool online galleries:

–> Audio Playground Keyboard Museum
–> IEEE Virtual Museum – Songs In The Key of E
–> Raymond Scott Studio Pictures
–> Oddmusic Gallery

This is not to say that I personally have any idea how these work or what makes them historically/conceptually special. They just look very cool.
