- A G4 Power Mac is loaded with a small handful of music and sits in a public space (the ITP lounge) and hooked up to powered speakers via a mixer.
- A Dynamic Web Site allows users to explore the collection and request music.
- The music plays on the speakers and can therefore only be heard in the lounge. In this way, it functions very much like a real jukebox.
- Users are authenticated against the NYU servers. A portion of the screen displays the last 10 requests and indicates which users made the requests.
