This might look like a real guitar and amplifier, but it’s actually an MP3 player. The uRock is a tiny little guitar that stores your MP3s along with a matching mini amp that’s lets you play back your tunes out loud.
Your fancy new iPod might have a touchscreen and Wi-fi, but I’m pretty sure it can’t do this. Not only does the iBird-1000 MP3 Player look like a bowtied penguin wearing headphones (I couldn’t make this stuff up), it can move its mouth and “sing” along with your music.
Who needs headphones when your MP3 player’s main feature is a big old speaker right smack dab in the middle of it? That’s what these digital music players from China are all about.
Lanhui’s LH-555 media players come in several bright colors, and have a retro sort of feel to them.
A while back, I told you about a slick, self-contained DJ mixing system called the Pacemaker. At the time, the pocket-sized device looked too much like concept art to be for real.
Well, the good news is that the folks over at Digital-Lifestyles managed to get their hands on one for this exclusive video preview, and all I can say is “Wow.”
Toshiba has rolled out a new series of Gigabeat-U digital media players in a huge variety of 24 candy-like colors.
With colors like bamboo, rattan, peony, persimmon and green onion, I thought I was looking at the paint swatches at the Home Depot.
Meizu, best known for their ridiculously copycat media players has released a new player that actually looks pretty decent. Surprisingly, it doesn’t derive too many of its looks from other manufacturer’s players either.
Available now from Brando, the $189 Meizu Mini Player looks like a pretty capable little media player.
Now that Apple’s iPhone has hit the market, it’s time for a bunch of the cheap knock-offs from the Far East to start popping up.
This iPhone clone is for those of you who want to look like you have an iPhone, but can’t afford it (or don’t actually need any of it’s best features.)
Philips has released their new line of GoGear mobile media players with video playback capabilities.
The GoGear SA6000 series features a 2.2-inch color LCD screen (320×240 resolution,) and can play back WMV vid clips. Philips also throws in a software converter for AVI, QuickTime and DVD (VOB) format files.
Here’s an MP3 player that doesn’t look like any other I’ve seen. Designed originally for the World Cup tournament, the Shiro AS MP3 Player looks a whole lot like a miniature soccer ball.
Sure, the Shiro won’t win any prizes for storage capacity, maxing out at 1GB of memory, but it certainly gets my endorsement for its cool design.
This upcoming gadget claims to put an entire professional DJ system in the palm of your hand. While early images of the Pacemaker look more like concept art than a final product, it does look like it will be a pretty cool device when it’s released this Fall.
This new MP3 player out of Korea features one special capability that makes it truly stand out from the crowd – it plays emulated video games.

A while back, we featured the first ever MP4 video player watch. Now you can pick up a wrist-worn player with a full 16:9 ratio widescreen.
The wrist player features a 1.8-inch widescreen color display (isn’t that an oxymoron like “jumbo shrimp?”)
If you’re looking for an easy way to stream music from your PC to any room in your house, and don’t want a lot of unsightly equipment laying around, check out this new digital music streamer coming from Sony.
Remember those old car horns that played “La Cucuracha” over and over again? A California auto accessories maker hopes to bring back that awful fad in a new, even more irritating way. Let me introduce you to Horntones, a device that lets you play MP3 or WAV files of your choice through your car horn.
After much speculation on prices ranging from $229 to $299, the Microsoft Zune media player has been officially announced for a November 14th release date at a price of $249.99.
