If you wanted to hear a limited edition of Wu-Tang's 20th anniversary album, "A Better Tomorrow," this past fall, you had to buy the Wu-edition Boombot Rex. It quickly sold out of its limited 3,000 run, at $80 a pop. It also can play music from any Bluetooth device, and is designed to be much more powerful for its size, than a comparable speaker.
"The idea is that the Boombotix Rex is used as another vehicle for music to be sold through," said RZA. "I grew up in a day when you go to a record store and you buy the album, you open it up and you feel happy. This is actually the most, quickest gratification you can get from music. Out of the box, you just open it, hit the button and you have music all ready, don't need your cellphone, no other device."
