Sonoro Eklipse clock radio / iPod dockThis clock radio/iPod dock has been in Europe for a while, but looks like Sonoro’s Eklipse iPod dock/CD player/ clock radio has only just gotten official for the US, and even has a price. That price is a shocking $550. The time must be displayed in real gold.

That price gets you 7.5W of power output, an OLED display, remote, and an auxiliary jack along with your iPod dock and slot-load CD. No official word on a release date, but soon you should be able to pre-order.

NASCAR Helmet with Radio and CD Player

Posted in Radio by Conner Flynn on November 13th, 2008

NASCAR Helmet with Radio and CD PlayerIt’s like somebody decapitated a Nascar robot for your musical enjoyment. While I’m not a big fan of watching cars go around in circles all day myself, while hearing phrases like “y’all” and “get her done” and the like, this makes me actually want to see a robot Nascar driver. There’s just something cool about LED’s under a helmet and a CD tray mouth branded with my favorite home renovation store.

It’s an AM/FM radio and CD player helmet, designed like the one Tony Stewart wears when driving his #20 Toyota Camry for Joe Gibbs Racing. Comes with a remote control. It would also double as a nice psycho trophy for the unbalanced Nascar fan who hasn’t managed to get close enough to bring home a head of their own for their desk. It will cost you $140 from Wal-Mart. Just where you might expect to get a gem like this.

Yamaha Silent Guitar lets your strumming be seen and not heard

Yamaha Silent Guitar lets your strumming be seen and not heardIf you have a kid learning the guitar chances are your ears could use a break. You’ll want to invest in this Yamaha Silent Nylon String Guitar. Plugging in a pair of headphones lets you practice at your own pace without annoying everyone around you.

You can also connect a CD player into the guitar itself so you can play along directly with the music, despite the fact that CDs are pretty much obsolete. Why they didn’t just build an mp3 player in it is anyone’s guess. Still, it’s a nifty instrument to have around. Especially fo those living in small apartments. The Yamaha Silent Nylon String Guitar will retail for a hefty $499.99. But silence is golden.


Rock the Bat Cave with the Batman Boombox

Posted in music by Conner Flynn on September 18th, 2008

Rock the Bat Cave with the Batman BoomboxHow does Robin crank up the tunes while Batman is out cleaning up the streets of Gotham? With Batman’s boombox of course. While it’s not shaped like a bat-wing or anything, it has a strange shape that resembles a…bat-something or other, with colors that go more with the comic books then the movies.

Features include such things as a tuner with LCD display, the ability to play CDs, CD-R and CDRW format, dynamic bass boost, line-in for portable MP3, player support, and top load media. It’s not hard to imagine Batman entertaining Catwoman one night and as he goes to put on some soft romantic tunes, the sound of Robin’s hardcore heavy metal deafens him as it sends bats flying everywhere. After a moment he switches CD’s, but sadly Catwoman’s purr is now gone. Such is the sad and lonely life of the Batman. Sigh.

Darth Vader radio and CD player

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on September 1st, 2008

Darth Vader radio and CD playerOnly Darth Vader could be so evil as to offer up a radio/CD player combo in the age of digital music. Such is the dark side. The crappy sound quality will make you suffer, suffering will lead to hate, hate will lead to anger and anger will lead to fear and before you know it you’re the latest Sith apprentice. Still, there’s always something cool about having Darth Vader’s helmet nearby.

And despite the fact that it plays CDs and offers the radio, it does have the option to connect your MP3 player so I guess it’s not all that bad. It’s got six buttons to control the music plus two apparently hidden inside the mouth for some reason. As an added bonus, when you play a CD you can see it spinning in Vader’s eyes with have red LEDs. Requires 6 x LR14 batteries. The price? $88 Yeah, Vader is evil. Am I gonna pay $88 for a CD player? I think not.

High priced UFO plays CDs, abducts you

High priced UFO plays CDs, abducts you
What with everyone on Earth having an iPod, if you’re going to dare to make CD players, it’s a good idea to at least make them different. One way to do that is to make it look like a UFO. A UFO that says, “Screw you human, we believe CDs are far superior to MP3s”. If you don’t believe them, they’ll convince you with a rectal probe or two. Has anybody ever done a study on how many abductees rush out and buy new CD players? The numbers might shock you.

The Chinese company Shanling specializes in shall we say odd CD players with unique looks and characteristics. Their latest, the CD-T300 Pro has four amplification valves, two remote controls, and gold-plated tube legs. But the most striking thing about it is that it looks like it is about to shoot a beam out the bottom and pull a cow onboard.
