"For those of you that may believe that everything in music was already invented, centuries ago, we beg to disagree," Georgia Tech President Ángel Cabrera said in his opening speech to a capacity crowd at the Ferst Center.

The ElectroSpit took the first place prize out of nine finalist instruments. ElectroSpit creator Bosko demonstrated how his talkbox invention is much more portable and easy to use than previous technology. Along with virtuoso partner, Craig King, and his DJ, Bosko gave an exciting performance that drew from his experience -- including an Outkast song which he collaborated on.
