Cute-speaker overload

Adorable USB speaker also displays your open-source proclivities.

We're revisiting a long-standing tradition here on Crave with this one: a gadget in the shape of a penguin !

Penguin USB speaker

It's been entirely too long since we've had aquatic-bird-inspired audio equipment. So herewith we present the Mini USB Rechargeable Penguin speaker. It stands just under 3 inches high, connects via USB to your computer, and has a 3.5-millimeter audio jack so it plugs into most MP3 players, CD players, or stereos. Your tunes of choice emanate from the back of the little guy.

DealExtreme has it for $9.90 with free shipping.
