Electron Box's miShake: controlled by shakes

The firm’s miShake player uses motion sensing technolog to allow users to literally shake their way through the PMP’s menus and features.

MiShake has an internal 4GB capacity and the ability to gain more, thanks to a Micro SD card slot.

The PMP also features an FM radio, dictaphone and even a pedometer - should you wish to combine rockin’ out and workin’ out. A digital spirit level’s even included for DIY fans.

It comes with a pair of in-ear cans which users can... er... "enhance" with optional Swarovski crystal decorations. Alternatively, you can listen to your tunes through the integrated speaker.

Electron Box’s miShake is available now online for £120 (€150/$240).
