boombox

Lifehacker shared an instructable for creating a portable "boombox" a while ago and I cannot seem to shake my interest in it.  It could be as this Geekosystem article points out that the boombox was the fastest adopted gadget in the last 50 years, and that nostalgia of listening to music with your friends in High school.  Regardless of the reason, and no matter how much of a hipster looking dbag the instructable author looks like I felt like there was something particularly interesting about this build



What do you think?  It's powered by AA batteries and uses this speaker this speaker and some laser cut acrylic and cnc cut MDF held together with fitted dowels.
