If having a hand crank wasn't odd enough, the Baylis Revolution is also unusually thick. Luckily all that room allows space for a large battery capable of 48 hours of audio playback.

If it weren't for the color screen, we'd swear the thick, black box we're holding was a retro cassette Walkman. Fortunately, despite its bulky dimensions, the Baylis Revolution is much more useful than an old tape deck.

Is that a brick in your pocket, or do you just have a ridiculously bulky MP3 player? The Baylis Revolution is better suited for the backpack than the pocket.
