There's something in the water across the pond, because UK gadget stores can't seem to get enough of oddly shaped, funky colored, glowing portable speakers for digital audio players.
The latest is the Hipper 50, which looks like a refugee from (a) a cheesy science-fiction film, (b) an upscale head shop, (c) a deranged Easter accessories catalog, or (d) all of the above. The ovoid 2-watt speaker has 10 LEDs providing a nice variety of color, and can be set to pulse to the music supplied through the line-in jack or USB port. Even without music, it can change color at different speeds, or act as a night light. You can also connect several Hipper 50s together for parties, or whatever excuse you have for psychedlics. That sounds reasonably versatile for about $110.
