Zumreed Cranks Out Volkswagen Minibus Radios
May 18th, 2007
For those of you who grew up in the Sixties, or just fans of Little Miss Sunshine, this little VW Minibus is actually an AM/FM clock radio.
Zumreed has released these nifty little gadgets which looks just like the classic Volkswagen van. Hidden inside is a fully functional stereo, with an AM/FM tuner and a LCD alarm clock (hidden on the rear of the minibus.) It’s even got a 3.5mm jack so you can hook up your MP3 player to it. The mini radio measures about 7″ long by 3″ high and comes in a variety of colors, but the classic two-tone red and beige is my favorite. The stereo can run off of battery, AC or USB power, so it’s also perfect as a speaker system for a small PC.
The VW Minibus radio retails for ¥8190 (appx. $68 USD), and can be found at Japanese online retailer Abide.
