If you’d like to tone down your carbon footprint a little lower next year then you just may want to consider getting a crank-up MP3 player. Â I was floored to see this “green inspired” gadget by Travor Baylis. Â Need to listen to your favorite tune, wind up the Eco Media Player before hitting that play button.Â
“My original windup radio pioneered a new eco technology that is as relevant and cutting edge today as it was 16 years ago. A new generation has grown up with many electronic devices that were inconceivable when I created my radio. Now we have developed a range of products that combine the best of these modern ideas with the freedom and energy efficiency of windup technology.
Welcome to the next generation.” -Â Trevor Baylis OBE
Priced at $179 (4GB) and $209 (8GB), much like your usual MP3 players by Apple, Sony Microsoft and Creative. Â The only difference I see though is that this one MP3 player with a built in flashlight. Â Kinda gives you an idea that this maybe a camping gadget, right?
Don’t worry about winding it up too many times though. Â When you want a break from winding the Eco Media Player does have an alternate Internal Lithium Ion battery which can be recharged via USB port, or the winding mechanism itself. You can get a maximum play time of 20 Hours on each charge.
