I’m going to start out by saying that I’m about 99.9% sure that this is not an official Iron Man product, so if anyone from Marvel is reading this, please don’t sue us. I just see stuff that looks cool and write about it.
This mini speaker definitely bears more than a passing resemblance to Iron Man’s red and gold Bleeding Edge armor – however, this version seems a bit more cute and rotund than the comic book or movie version of the superhero. The little speaker measures about 3 inches-tall and plugs into your media player with a standard 3.5mm jack – though I have to say the placement of the connector is, um… unfortunate:
I can’t imagine that would be comfortable – especially knowing there’s electricity flowing through Iron Man’s butt plug. I also wish that his arc reactor chest actually glowed blue – that’d be way cooler than the tiny red LED power indicator in his chest. Oh well, what do you want for a cheap knock-off gadget, perfection?
If you happen to live in Korea, you can find the Iron Man mini speaker over at the Early Adopter Shop[KR] for 19800 Korean Won (~$18 USD). A quick Google search turns up a number of places importing these for under $10 though.
