iPod shuffle might be tiny but it lacks of the touch function that is a rage these days. if you constantly feel the need to get all touchy, even for a tiny device like your MP3 player, then the upcoming theKube2 might just be the MP3 player you need. conceived by Singapore-based Bluetree Electronics, theKube2 is the second generation theKube. the original tiny theKube was first introduced into the market two years ago and its successor is set to please the style-conscious, gesture-loving gadget fanatics. aesthetically, it takes on the Apple-ish look with an aluminum body, coupled with touch sensitive top and bottom faceplates. basically, hard buttons are virtually non-existence in this little device and music control is solely via gesture control. control is simple: swiping your digit along the faceplate skips the track; diagonal swipe pauses the playback or activates the shuffle mode, while holding your digit to the top or bottom faceplates, raise or lower the volume respectively. we thought the latter is one of the coolest features of this handsome little device.

too many complex gadgets in your life? i assure you that this next gadget will not add to that list of complex gadgets of yours. new from Suck UK is this aptly dubbed Cardboard Radio which, honestly speaking, has nothing much to elaborate on then to say that it is a standard radio enclosed in a simple card structure. so what good does it do? well, on the eco-friendliness perspective, you can be sure that at least the external can be recycled when it’s time to bid farewell to it. as for the internal, we can’t say for sure. though based on general understanding of a simple radio’s working, they usually don’t breakdown like the more complex gadgets we have today. in line with its simplicity, its specification is also pretty scant but i do note that it can probably be use as media player speaker. at least that’s what the image is telling me. the Suck UK Cardboard Radio retails for a modest £25 (about US$40).
