Egokast Belt-Worn Player

Whether or not they were the original reasons for someone to purchase a portable player, fashion and self-esteem are often significant factors. Being seen with the right player can, in some circles, draw approving looks. It might be questionable as to whether the appropriately-titled Egokast will truly improve your social status, but it's undoubtedly one of the few portable media players to make public display the central feature. Sitting in the middle of a stainless steel belt buckle, a removable media player can play audio or video on its 3.5-inch screen during the 4 or more hours of battery life. While its format support runs the typical gamut of multiple MPEG and Windows Media files for audio and video, the designer also includes a DVD of "fragments:" looping animations made expressly to bring attention to your belt. An SD slot with an included 512MB card should be more than enough for the relatively small video clips its target user will likely need. The asking price of $290 will get you the player and all accessories, minus the belt you provide yourself.
