Kube 2 Player Released, Not An iPod

By David Ponce

All the cool kids are getting iPhones and iPods to play their music, and it turns out they’re all baristas too. Weird. But if you want none of this nonsense, there are other options. Lots, really. The Kube 2 is one of these. This little hexahedron stores its music in microSD cards, which go up to 32GB. It measures 1 inch on all sides and has a touch sensitive interface: “A quick swipe will allow the user to switch to the previous or next track. Placing a finger at the top or bottom of the Kube2 will raise or lower the volume, respectively.” The battery should be good for about 6 hours and if you get sick of the way it looks, you can purchase little stick-on skins for $4 a pop.

The best part is perhaps the price: $35.
