Ice Cream Bar Speaker Might Sound As Scrumptious As It Looks

As certain as death and taxes, the speaker on your phone or media player probably sucks. And even if this adorable ice cream bar shaped speaker doesn't impress audio engineers, it should improve the sound coming from your portable device.

Remove the popsicle stick and you'll find a USB port for recharging its lithium polymer battery good for about two hours of use. Remove the top of the plastic iced treat and you'll find a standard stereo mini plug—that's all there is to it. For $30 you get an extra 0.8 watts of listening pleasure, and whatever joy you can derive from its novel design. [AudioCubes via Chip Chick]
