We were wandering around the Finders Keepers market in Melbourne last weekend and saw these awesome little portable speakers or JukeCase’s. They are built into old suitcase’s and use old speaker parts internally as well as a bit of modern geek with battery back power and iPod connectivity. Because all of the JukeCase’s are made […]
