Isn't it nice to see someone with a little design know-how dipping their toes into the portable speaker pool?

The Propeller comes across all 2001: A Space Odyssey with Shuffle-esque players, which make it look like a '60s exploratory satellite. Or slap on a Sony NW-HD1, and it becomes a fancy pole with a big thick metal flag at the top.  

Looks aren't everything...In any case, a single AA is all it takes to get the Propeller singing. Unfortunately, the aural experience it provides could be considered a tad painful, and there's no volume control. Our advice? Buy for looks but whatever you do, don't switch it on.

Buy it for the design but probably best not to switch it on
