“Guess what’s the fastest-adopted gadget of the last 50 years?” asks Alex Madrigal. Cell phone? CD player? Color television? Digital camera?

Nope. Boombox.

“Guess What’s the Fastest-Adopted Gadget of the Last 50 Years,” Alex Madrigal, The Atlantic.

Boomboxes on the Mall

Boomboxes on the Mall

Ryan and Hays Holladay are Bluebrain, composers and producers of musical concept art. One of their works matched original musical compositions with locations through iPhone GPS to provide a unique tour of DC’s National Mall. They have also produced live events, and their 3rd and last DC Boombox Walk was at the U.S. Botanic Garden on Saturday at 3 PM. Sadly, we learned of the event at 2:45 PM on Saturday, but we expect to see documentation on the Web soon. You can hear some of the music here.
