An MP3 player that will break your heart

It splits into a pair of his-and-her gadgets.

Mobile Magazine

Never having been adept at deciphering optical illusions, we first thought the concept of Valentine's Day got lost in the translation of this Chinese-made gadget (as in, a broken heart). Once our myopia cleared up, we saw that there are two interlocking faces that can be snapped apart, freeing a pair of his-and-her MP3 players.

Although it's supposedly being released just in time for the holiday, Mobile Magazine says this music player from Beijing-based Newman will be available only in China for now. There's also no information on specs or capacity, but we thought it was worth mentioning if only to show that one must go overseas to find some original marketing for Valentine gifts. Unless you're talking about love lasers .
