DemerBox Rugged Wireless Boombox
What’s the one thing that’s always been missing from whitewater kayaking? Correct, a soundtrack. Now there’s a boom box that’s ready, willing, and able to tag along on whatever crazy outdoor adventure you find yourself on. It’s called the DemerBox, and it’s the brainchild of James Demer, a location sound mixer who’s worked on films like Bowling for Columbine and Winter’s Bone.
Each one is assembled by hand in Portland, Maine, and among the stress tests it receives is a dunk in a fish tank. The Bluetooth-enabled box is said to be water-resistant until submerged in water deeper than one foot or for one minute. There are two models to choose from, the Bang (about the size of a lunchbox with one speaker) and Big Bang (soccer ball-sized with two speakers), and both promise great sound, with up to 40 hours of play time between charges.
