I bet Trevor G. Baylis himself didn't believe that two of his passions can work that great combined so as to lead to this. His love for swimming and innovation created the Free Play clockwork-wind up radio.
Nowadays, after years of dedicating his life to creating media stuff for the disabled people's needs, he comes up with a new gizmo dubbed the Eco Media Player. The device can play up to 40 minutes of music on a single minute of wind up time, but it can also play videos in asv and mpeg-4 file formats
directly on its shiny LCD screen.
Besides that, the player has also integrated FM tuner in the system, as it follows the trend to include as much features as possible in the device. Therefore, the manufacturers enhanced the player with e-book capabilities, as well as photo albums displaying and slide showing. Still, the most amazing detail about the device is the fact that it requires no battery power whatsoever to do all the tricks.
The rest of the technical specification details are the usual stuff that are kind of common on the market, such as a 2GB internal memory than can be boosted with the help of the SD cards. It doesn't even require any driver to use and when it's connected to the PC or laptop, it behaves as an individual external disk drive, allowing easy "drag and drop" of all media files.
And if you work as a journalist or police investigator, you'll be glad to know that it features a built-in microphone, great for recording voice memos.
But the device can act as a recorder and tape ripper to capture a large record collection into portable MP3s. And that's something! In addition, the Eco Media Player acts as a cell phone charger.
Despite working on windup power, the Eco Media Player has also an integrated Lithium ion battery, rechargeable via USB port, or through the winding mechanism. For each charge, you get 20 hours of playback.
As for the pricing and availability details, the player's price tag is around 340 bucks. Just imagine how much electricity you can save while using this eco-friendly device.
