The Shiro SQ: Solar Powered Media

Shiro’s SQ media player takes a sustainable approach to playing your mp3s and videos.  On the rear panel of the SQ, a solar cell generates electricity from direct sunlight– enough to fully charge the unit in four hours.  Beyond the stardard mp3/wav/wma playback, the Shiro SQ also includes an FM tuner and a small mic for voice recording.  While we have only seen poor renderings at this point (note that the above is a collage of the rear of the SQ and the front of the VT), but pictures, pricing and release dates will likely hit the web soon.  – via Gear Crave
