What: Boom Bags stereo-subwoofer-microphone-compatible luggage. As in, the audio equipment is inside the luggage.
Why: Actually, I’m not really sure. It seems like they just put two random things together. Like, a water bottle that’s also an alarm clock (because you keep both by your bedside?) – it’s not a bad idea, just kind of odd.
The Boom Bags people seem to think these are most helpful for traveling professionals talking in front of powerpoints (see photo below) because you can plug in a mic and project to a whole room through your suitcase (and if the room's too big, they say, get two suitcases!). Personally, I just think it’d be cool to have a dance party in my hotel room – the bags amplify music from iPods and laptops. And, of course, they’re also luggage. Get yourself some packing cubes to put inside and be a crazy efficient well-packed multitasker.
