It really is one of the worst feelings imaginable. You reach for your phone, MP3 player, PDA or other such gadget, it slips from your hand and – almost in slow motion – crashes to the floor. If you’re lucky, you’ll get a chip or a dent. If you’re not, it’s time for a trip to the bank. Wouldn’t it be great if all gadgets were indestructable like the Monolith Premium MX7000 MP3 player?
The MX7000’s aluminium casing is not glued or screwed together but fused in special process called "X-Protect". And it works. The player was tested by being run over by a car, hurled against a brick wall and getting shot at. The MX7000 plays MP3 / WMA / OCG files and has a FM tuner. The downside is just 512 MB memory and a severe lack of style.
The Monolith Premium MX7000 sells for around $155 in the US.
