…and This Little Piggy Had Sound
August 2nd, 2009
How many times have you said to yourself: “I could really use a new speaker for my MP3 player, but I really want one that looks like a pig. Oh, and I happen to live in Japan.” Well, to the none of you who have actually said that, have I got something for you!
These ceramic pigs from Japan’s I.D.E.A. feature a full-range speaker in their bellies. The only thing tastier than pork bellies is amplified pork bellies! Mmmm.
They’re available in black, white, and shiny gold, but you really want the pearlescent pink one, don’t you? Of course you do. My favorite thing about the piggy speaker is the skinny little tail that doubles as the connector for your media player. Oink!
Currently, I.D.E.A. Pig Speakers are only available in Japan, where they sell for ¥4,725 (appx. $50 USD).
I just want to put that Spider-Pig song on my iPod, hook it up, crank it to 11, and put it on infinite repeat.
