Renewable Source Motz Tiny Acorn Speaker: So Cute It Hurts

Do you need a portable speaker? Of course you need a portable speaker. Do you want a speaker tiny enough to fit in the palm of your hand, made of wood and other renewable sources, that looks like an acorn? With a built-in full-scan FM receiver? Of course you do!

The Motz Tiny Wooden Speaker is truly a thing of wonder, which comes to us by way of Red Ferret. It plays the tunes from your MP3 player or computer via a standard audio jack and provides 5 hours of “rich audio” sound via rechargeable lithium ion batteries, which can be charged via USB.  It picks radio frequencies ranging from 87.5 to 108 MHz, weighs just 15 grams, and measures just 30 x 30 x 30 x 35 millimeters.

Moreover, this product of Korean ingenuity is 100% handcrafted, somehow, from “natural cut apricots” and wood, and is made to mimic the shape, look and feel of an actual acorn. It’s available for $35.99 from Motz, a company with an appropriate tag: “unique imagination.” Add it to your other cool wooden electronics.
