I came across this today. I thought it was (reasonably) interesting.
Dubbed ‘The First Self Playing Digital Audio Book,’ this should come in handy for people who do not have access to an Mp3 player. It’s basically a pre-installed, throwaway Digital Audio Book. It comes with a built-in control console (Play, Stop, Pause, Forward, Rewind etc) and a set of headphones. It runs on a AA battery which gives approximately 12 hours playback.
- Price comes in at $35 – which is a bit expensive in my opinion
- You cannot change the pre-installed data, meaning once you listened to your book once, that’s it for the usefulness of the unit.
