Remember those times when jukeboxes were popular, and were found at every bar and restaurant? Well, they are making a comeback in a digitized form.

By installing the related app on a mobile device plugged into a stereo, users can change the music queue by up-voting their favorite songs – the lineup is made visible to everyone at the venue.
