"Cranking" MP3 player launches

With a 1GB capacity and a design that won't win any red dot awards, the main USP for this new MP3 player is its green credentials.

One minute's worth of cranking will give you playback of 10 minutes - although there is USB charging too for when your arm gets tired.

Including shipping, it'll cost 55 euros, which is around £43, but consider what you'll save on batteries...
