Shiro SQ-S MP3 player can charge itself
The Shiro SQ-S MP3 player is one the finalists for the HKEIA Award for Outstanding Innovation & Technology Products. The player is equipped with a 1.8″ 65K colors LCD display that can display track lists, Images, Video and even the odd eBook. The media player supports MP3/ WMA/ WAV/ FLAC/ APE/ OGG music formats. It even comes with an integrated FM tuner and a voice recorder, which has the option to even record the song you hear right off the station. The player has 16GB built-in memory, and can play music for up to 35 hours or 7 hours of video. What sets this player apart from the crowd is the Solar cell, which is conveniently placed at the back of the player. This further recharges the player in around 4 hours giving virtually unlimited music time to its user.
The Shiro SQ-S MP3 player will be available in three colors (Silver/ Red/ Blue) and four patterns variation in its circular keypad. No word yet on pricing or availability. Do you think more media player manufacturers should develop green solutions for our ever-increasing hunger for energy?
