Green pod for eco friendly

Subscribe to Oneindia News

London, Feb 12 (UNI) The eco-conscious would definitely shake in rythm with this ''greenPod'' -- the world's first wind-up music and video player.

The Eco Media Player could play music for about 20 hours before needing to be charged and produced enough power in a minute to play 40 minutes of songs.

The Eco Media Player can store up to 500 songs and comes complete with an FM radio, torch, voice recorder and video player.

It would also be appreciated by music lovers who forget to charge their iPod before leaving home.

The player costs around 140 pounds and also doubles as an emergency mobile phone charger.

''In an age when people are increasingly worried about climate change, it's a way of reducing electricity use,'' the Daily Mail quoted inventor Trevor Baylis as saying.

The greenPod, launched last year, can also be charged by being plugged into a computer and has a 1.8 inches LCD screen to play video clips and show photographs.

The latest wind-up gadgets use a dynamo to charge up small, but powerful, lithium batteries.

''We've got quite a few new things coming in, including a wind-up mobile phone,'' Mr Baylis said.
