Thanko's Speaker in a Box: It's a a box!

This has to be one of the strangest products we've ever seen: Thanko has released a box-shaped speaker that pumps out a hearty 1.2-watts of mono goodness- and is designed to dress up in the cardboard box that your iPod video or nano came in. As you can plainly see, the picture here is definitely worth a thousand words, not only providing an excellent representation of the product's functionality, but also portraying the whistling, hand-clapping satisfaction you'll receive in repurposing some old packaging. The Speaker in a Box (more great marketing) is available for around $38, although the few of you who could possibly be interested in such a product will have to import from Japan, it seems.
