Creative Japan today took the wraps off this cool portable speaker for the 2G iPod Shuffle. The compact speaker goes great with the brushed metal finish of Apple’s tiny media player.

I’ve written about some out of this world speaker designs in my time, but never anything quite like these speakers from Germany’s MBL.
