That's not a sugar cube, it's a speaker cube

A Japanese company called Landport has taken speaker portability to a minimalistic extreme by recently announcing the launch of the Cube Speaker. The Cube speaker is so tiny that it fits well within a small portion of your palm and measures a cubic side of 26mm, with an output of 0.8Watts. That's portability or what.

Connection to an external device (iPod, other mp3 players, and CD players) is via a small, antenna-like 3.5mm jack positioned over the speaker. And you can charge the speaker by connecting it to a computer via the USB port at the back. The playback time is pretty decent as well - you get four to five hours of playtime after a two-hour charging session.

We think the iPods look rather uncomfortably perched over the speakers, but that’s only because being small brings along its share disadvantages too. If you want to give the midgets a go, the Cube speakers are to be available in Japan (only) by December and will be priced at $25 a cube.
