The audio captured by the microphone on the cart is fed through the mixer to three different broadcast sources.”Link.

    Cool. How do you get the cart? Can you really say “finder’s keepers” when you find an abandoned cart – or is there a place you can get them – uhh – legally?

    I don’t know – my first thought is ‘where’s the tv zapper equivalent to shut this thing up’. I guess you could just roll it in front of a truck.

    The stolen shopping cart makes me think “ugh, urban artistes,” the FM transmitter makes me think “nice, pirate radio is awesome” and the amplifier and six speakers makes me think “Oh sweet Lord, I’m gonna have to start carrying a bat everywhere just in case.”
