How’s this for multitasking: you can now listen to music and save the planet at the same time with a wind-up Eco Media Player.Wind Ecodigital’s tree-hugging PMP for just one minute, and it’ll repay your hard work with a groovy 40 minutes of carbon neutral vibes. And for those part-time eco warriors among you, the Eco Media Player can also be juiced via the more conventional – but more planet-killing – USB route.You can watch Genesis’ performance at Live Earth for the nineteenth time on the 1.8in full colour screen, or listen to your favourite Cambodian nose flute compilation via the Eco’s music player.But this environmental activist also functions as a picture viewer, a voice recorder, a torch, an E-book viewer and an FM radio (which the Eco can record and store). You’re limited to 2GB of internal memory, but that can easily be expanded via the SD card slot.As if it wasn’t content with merely rescuing humanity from ecological Armageddon, the Ecodigital will also charge your mobile if it’s running low on fuel and you can’t reach a socket in time. Not that you’d be using a mobile phone of course, unless you’re an enemy of mother earth, man.Essentials Trevor Baylis EMP-MX71 Price: £170 On sale: mid-August (pre-order now) Contact: Ecodigital Related stories: Tree-hugging Dell goes green PC World’s tree-hugging green machine Go environ-mental for Tesco’s green PVR
