exploded view of boombot REX



boombot ‘REX’ is the next evolution of smart speakers in the ultraportable boombotix collection. a salute to the king of dinosaurs, the ‘REX’ mimics the thump of the T-rex’s footsteps as it ruled the land. with a revolutionary acoustic and industrial design, a noise-canceling microphone and a built-in clip, this speaker allows you to stay connected to your friends and your music, while keeping your phone safely in your pocket. the device connects to iPods, smartphones, tablets, and laptops using wireless bluetooth technology. stream music, change tracks, and answer, end, or deny phone calls on the fly. ‘REX’ is designed to withstand the demands of an active lifestyle so you can bring your tunes with you, wherever you go.

having spent the last year refining the portable gadget and playing around with different speaker configurations, boombot came up ‘REX’ –  a SIRI-enabled speaker that is incredibly loud with an acoustically balanced geometric design – and have launched a kickstarter campaignto fund the project.
