Boombotix Announces “Build-a-Bot” for the Boombot REX
DIY online customization tool offers complete personalization for the ultraportable Bluetooth speaker
(SAN FRANCISCO – Feb. 3, 2015) – Boombotix, a leader in portable music technology, announces today the “Build-A-Bot” customization tool for the Boombot REX. The Build-A-Bot also comes with limited edition artwork created by Benny Gold (MSRP $79.99).
The Boombot REX ultraportable Bluetooth speaker connects to iPods, computers, tablets and other smartphones with Bluetooth capability. The special polymer housing means Boombots are built to withstand more than just general wear and tear. Build-A-Bot allows users to create a unique Boombot REX by mix-and-matching the speaker’s grills, bezel, clip and body color. Additionally, Build-A-Bot users can upload pictures from smartphones or personal artwork, and print it on a Boombot REX’s grill.
“We’re the first speaker manufacturer to allow this level of customization through our website,” said Boombotix founder Lief Storer. “Having the ability to put my artwork on speakers adds another dimension to what Boombotix was always meant to be: a personalized, ultraportable music experience.”
Thanks to the efficient on-demand print technology, the turnaround time for a custom printed Boombot REX is only a week.
Boombotix partnered with Benny Gold to create three limited edition designs that users can select when customizing a speaker. The designs harness Benny Gold’s classic retro aesthetic. With the two brands both being located in San Francisco, Benny Gold made for an ideal partner in helping Boombotix launch Build-A-Bot.
“The Gold brand consistently partners with companies that represent quality products, and the Boombot REX exemplifies that value,” said Benjamin Weiner, creator of the Benny Gold brand. “The designs we created for this partnership include imagery that fans of our brand will be familiar with.”
The Boombot REX boasts the best sound for its size, among other attractive specifications for a rugged, ultraportable speaker:
• A rechargeable medical grade lithium-ion battery (1500mAH capacity)
• 8 hour runtime at top volume
• Improved hydro-sealing to handle light rain/snow (IPX4 rating)
• Easy to reach top mounted button configuration
• Embedded microphone to take calls on the go
• A refined acoustic design
• Power: 2 x 3W Full Range Drivers + Passive Bass Woofer
• Bluetooth 2.1 A2DP Wireless Connectivity
All Boombots come with a one-year, “no matter what” warranty. The ABS polymer housing makes every speaker ultraportable and ultra rugged. Boombotix offers many accessories, such as the bicycle handlebar bar mount and TuffSKIN protective cover, to give users even more creative and travel freedom.
