For bored campers accustomed to whiling away those tedious nature-filled hours downing cheap beer or playing Scrabble, we've found the perfect reason to never leave the tent.
Trevor Baylis, creator of the first wind-up radio, and the amazing electric shoe, has introduced the first wind-up MP3 player. Available at the end of August with a price tag of $350, the Eco Media Player seems like an attention-deficit camper's dream come true. The wind-up media player has a 1.8-inch color screen and a lean 2GB of memory that can be expanded using an SD memory card. Like a media junkie Swiss Army knife, the Eco Media player features an MP3 player, a video player, an FM radio, and a flashlight, voice recorder, photo viewer, mobile phone charger, and an e-book viewer. It also can be used as a portable storage drive in a pinch.
