Pendant MP3 player with a twist of Linux


Shinco_medaillon_unpluggedA French company has produced an MP3 player in a pendant form factor with 128/256 MB of Flash memory. The Medaillon Lecteur MP3 Z2 is a small pendant that can be worn around the neck, although I am not sure why you would want to. What sets this player apart from the crowded MP3 player field is the inclusion of embedded Linus (Shinux) in the tiny device. The Medaillon can be used as a boot device on PCs with BIOSes that support booting from USB storage devices. Linux to go, so to speak. Kind of like wearing a penguin around your neck. 119 – 159 euros.
