I haven't seen anyone rocking a boombox since June 5th, 1982, but boomboxes are still around...still around and completely awesome. Check out that pic above. That's one of JVCs just revealed carry-around stereo systems, the UX-GN6.
The UX-GN6 boasts 120 watts of power and features a "wake up" mode that works by waving a hand in front of the system to illuminate the controls and the LED display. Pretty slick. It also features touchscreen controls, an iPod dock, USB support, CD player, radio and video out so iPod video can be played through a connected TV.
Sadly, they don't come with a cassette player, and you'll have to provide your own roller skates.
What do you think? If you saw me walking down the street with that boombox on my shoulder blasting Sugar Hill Gang, would you think I was cool or lame?
