If you've been looking for a speaker that accurately mimics the look of Hello Kitty's decapitated skull, the SkullyBoom SB1 ($60) should be right up your alley. The grim, little speaker box uses a rechargeable lithium ion battery to power a single 2-inch speaker, all packed inside a cartoonish, vinyl skull.

But you'll need to wait until June 2010 before getting your hands on one. As the first product out of the Delicious Drips boutique, the company is gearing up for production and currently accepting preorders.

If you're short on patience and desperately need a SkullyBoom, the Instructables blog features step-by-step instructions on making your own, using $40 in parts (and check out the Munny speaker project while you're at it).
