This device is powered by built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery, it can also be used as a PC speaker or authentic redneck decoration. It leaves me saying one word. Why?

Posted in Cameras by Conner Flynn on December 30th, 2010

Yesterday we showed you a cool Canon EOS 350D savings bank. Today we have another Camera based oddity. This DSLR-themed speaker and MP3 player cleverly dances around the copyright issue by calling itself ‘Caoon’ instead of Canon. Even though it’s a near perfect replica of one of the company’s DSLRs.

It won’t take pics, but will serve as an external speaker for any device connected to the 3.5mm audio port, or as an MP3 player loading content from an SD card or USB flash drive. The buttons to the left of the display are playback controls. It will cost you $82.99.

Posted in Portable Meda Players by Conner Flynn on May 10th, 2010

It used to be a fairy tale dream for your digital audio player to give you more than two full days without needing a charge. These days we are living the dream, but it’s still not that often we see a DAP with 60 hours of battery life.

Especially one that features a 3-inch, QVGA TFT LCD that plays ten hours of DivX, Xvid, WMV and H.264 video to boot, like Samsung’s YP-RB. Looks like the player comes in 4, 8 and 16GB varieties. Here’s hoping we see this one hit stateside soon.

It has a large button for power on and off, but if you press and hold the button when the player’s upside down the volume will go down. Do the opposite to increase the volume.

It comes in 2GB and 4GB capacities. It may not have a display, but the TicToc has more going on than the iPod Shuffle. Even if it does look girlly. It can play MP3, WMA, OGG and FLAC files for 12 hours before recharging.

In the old days it was better to have a larger boombox, but that led to shoulder problems and like 40 C batteries a week. Just visit any nursing home. They’ll tell ya.

Mintpass Cube MP3 playerThe Mintpass Cube MP3 player is for those who love reading meters. The 2 inch cube also sports push button controls, analog displays for volume, battery charge, and frequency, 3.5mm audio out, and Bluetooth. No word on storage capacity or price.

Call us geeks, but we see this MP3 player and we just can’t help wondering what a Borg ship would look like with a battery meter on the side. Of course the Federation would always know when Borg batteries are running low.
