Baylis Eco MP3 player is a wind-up

Energy systems, MP3 players

bayliss_mp3.jpgNo really, you have to wind it up. The new MP3 player from Trevor Baylis, powered entirely by renewable energy (i.e. crazy winding action) has finally arrived, allowing you to take your music anywhere without the need for batteries.

It doesn’t look half bad either, with an improved, streamlined design (compare with the old, slightly clunkier look). Like your average iPod, Zen, Zune, Zig, Zag, Zorro or similar, the Eco media player doesn’t only play music, it also displays photos, and is compatible with iTunes.

Even better, it’s got an integrated phone charger, if you run out of juice on the move on your other main gadget. It has a 4 to 8GB memory, with the option to upgrade by an extra 4GB on an SD card. It’ll be available at Ethical Superstore early next week for the princely sum of £130.
