Photographers who enjoy their music on the go might want to add this interesting camera novelty item to their collection.

Designed to look like a Nikon 55-200mm telephoto lens, the device is actually a portable speaker. Instead of the typical glass optical elements, the gadget sports a speaker driver. It's also capable of playing music from various audio sources such as smartphones, computers, and other devices with a 3.5mm stereo minijack.

Apart from control buttons on the barrel to pause, skip, and stop audio tracks, the speaker also comes equipped with a built-in lithium battery, a USB port (for line-in and charging), and a microSD card slot. The rechargeable battery is rated to last up to four hours for music playback.
