Mission-based Boombotix makes portable speaker systems ideal for summer fun

Boombotix (whose little garage I’m sure you’ve passed a bunch of times on 23rd) gave us a Boombot a couple weeks ago and we’ve been testing it out. It makes a pretty big sound for its negligible size, so it’s lovely if you’re lazing on a deserted riverbank or blogging in the hammock out back and dying to pump up some jams. (Also, they don’t look super high-tech, so you worry less that it’ll be stolen if you leave it onshore when you go for a dip.)

They have a wireless version too, but I like the wired version plenty. And they both come in a variety of looks.

Plus, right now they’re giving away a Boombot AND tickets to the Treasure Island Music Festival!

    I’m just not going to comment on advertising anymore, because now I feel like an idiot who’s pointing out the obvious.

      There’s a lot of people in the Mission who make interesting useful stuff for a living, and they generally enjoy reading about other people who are doing the same.

      Maybe this isn’t the ‘omg capitalism!!!11′ blog you’re looking for?

          You guys are both right. The advertising methods in the post are rather tactless, but even more I really need to shut my trap and stop spouting out political garbage that comes from the depths of my bitter broke[n] ass heart.

    another cool way to share/force my taste in music on other people in public. Just like so dude that rides a bike in The Mission.

    I like my Jambox more, even if Jawbone is based slightly to the east of the Mission in the Design District.
