 Instructables: Upcycled Vintage Suitcase Boombox – By Robb

Robb was once an Artist-in-Residence at Autodesk’s Pier 9. He went to Carnegie Mellon to study Art. He mostly does tangible artifacts that are often complex.

I am currently an Artist in Residence at the San Francisco Dump, run by Recology.There, I have witnessed unending tons of unwanted debris flow from the consumer into recycling centers and landfills. I noticed that nearly all of the E-waste was almost entirely functional, so I decided to make myself a speaker set made entirely from waste.

Portable, loud, and fashionable. Take a vintage suitcase and install a set of speakers, passive crossovers, an amplifier, and a couple of rechargeable batteries. Now you have a portable, albeit heavy, stereo that will make your ears bleed.
