'Blade Runner' MP3 player: No blockbuster

The gadget certainly doesn't live up to its name.

You can't really blame the makers of this "Blade Runner" MP3 player if they go all-out on the marketing front despite its mediocre features. Given the cult status of its namesake movie classic, just about anything bearing that title might well send droves of fans reaching for their wallets.

But we agree with Chip Chick that it looks as if it were made from leftover Razr cases, which doesn't help its 2GB of storage, 1.8-inch display, and other decidedly unimpressive specs. And we're curious to know if any copyright issues will be raised, because we'll go out on a limb and guess that this isn't a studio-sanctioned product. With or without the unicorn.
