Ghetto Blaster Nouveau is No Less Annoying

Illustration for article titled Ghetto Blaster Nouveau is No Less Annoying

Here's a redesign of that annoying ghetto blaster from the '70s and '80s, but this one is more ergonomic, with a shape that naturally hangs on the shoulder. There's plenty of room inside the top section for a nice big bass speaker, while the extended part that hangs down your back gives those big bass sound waves some room to expand and reflect themselves while rattling your backbone into musical Nirvana. That might translate into something like purgatory for those sitting near you, however.

It hangs like a shoulder bag, or you can fasten it around your waist like a belt.

Yeah, it has a fresh and updated design, but the device's designer, Dirk Winkle, needs to consider that a ghetto blaster still forces others to listen to music you've chosen, just like it did in the early '80s.

Although if it were draped over the shoulder of the babe in the white pants, we might give her a pass, especially if she had decent musical taste.

If they had it in wood-grain colors, it might be mistaken for a gourd carry a tasty beverage (yeah, you see people carrying those all over American beaches), and then you would not know where the music was coming from. Well, except the speaker holes, button, and green light. But, other than that - it would work great.
