THE SOCIAL STEREO- A BOOMBOX THAT CAN TALK TO OTHER BOOMBOXES.

We are building a revolutionary new Open-Source Boombox that can communicate with other boomboxes and will enable people to come together and create infinitely-scalable Decentralized Sound Systems. This is a device which will alter the course of history.

The inaugural Restive Geek PowWow went down at BURNING MAN, and a second one was held in New York City on Sept. 15th.

Send an email with subject text “SOCIAL STEREO” to: info<at>SocialStereo<dot>com to receive updates and get involved in the online/offline Research and Development.

You can also join the brand new Social Stereo Subreddit and / or support the development of the latest prototype by clicking the “Donate” tab to the right :)

More info will be posted soon!

    There may be, but in our experience, cheap FM transmitters and extremely unreliable and problematic. We’re going to be releasing The Official DDP Field Manual very soon, which will collect all transmitter information in one place. Please join the mailing list to keep abreast of its release :)

    Sweet. Discovered this page via the Burning Man Google Map.

    So I get how stuff is received, but I’m confused as to how it’s transmitted. If the set up is designed to all transmit to one station, how do people compete to be the source that’s listened to? And if those listening have the option to choose whether they listen to you or someone else, how is this different from traditional short-wave radio? Maybe I don’t get it at all.

    I’ll be sure to stop by your camp and check it out!

    Mind blowing idea! If I were smart enough I would happily design you a beautiful, sleek, Arty McFly/teenwolf in a speedo jambox. But since I can’t I’ll just do the best I can to get the word out. Good luck!

    I would like to get involved in the social stereo project. If you have plans for a prototype I would like to build one and see if I can offer ideas for enhancements.
