Strange thing in the LPU store


#1

Was just sticking around the store when I noticed this device. Anybody knows it’s purpose?


#2

I think it’s some kind of music streaming thing but I’m not sure.

EDIT: https://www.plugair.com/en/howto/

Seems to be some content sharing thing. It has an app but for some reason you need that box thing which is stupid.


#3

It was part of the LPU 13 package, more info here: http://linkinpark.com/plugair

(It was cool for a while, but they never developed it even further and stopped using it within 6 months)


#4

The cartridge is still rather impractical. I think it’s there just so the band can make more money. What was wrong with a paid app?

Thank you:)

You actually only used the plug air thingie once, it saved your data and didn’t have to plug it in again. You basically just had access to a somewhat LPU app, it had a few extra videos (that were later uploaded to the site), news and stuff like that. It wasn’t a success, a LOT of people had trouble with it from the very beginning too.
