Sports Car DVD Player with TFT display

Personal video players

Is this the strangest portable DVD player you’ve seen? The Sports Car DVD Player with TFT display, which has just appeared on the Play Engine website, has everything you’d expect from a portable player, whilst neatly doubling up as a toy car (if you want to act like a big kid).

I can’t think of any time I’d like to watch a film through the boot of a toy car, but if you’ve an obsession with all things four wheels, you’ll be interested to know that discs go in via a tray at the front of the car, with the 5-inch LCD screen sliding up through the roof. The player is compatible with DVD, SVCD, DVCD, VCD, MP3, CD and CD-R/W discs. Speakers are located in the rear wheels, with the AV output at the rear (probably doubling as the exhaust). It even has a pair of LEDs for headlights which flash when you use the remote control.

The website hasn’t yet confirmed a price, but I’m guessing that if you’re in the minority that this appeals to, that probably doesn’t matter.
