Players in unusual packages
Songboy.com-add music to games
The number of portable digital music players out there is quickly approaching 100, and most of them are beginning to look the same. There are a few players out there, however, which definitely warrant some attention. They literally break the mold of portable music players and have pushed the envelope in how you enjoy your music.
Step 1: What is Songboy.com?
If you have a Gameboy portable gaming unit, (and 120 million of them are out there) then you also have the foundation for a portable digital music player. Instead of a game cartridge inserted into the machine, you insert the cartridge-shaped Songboy digital music player into the unit.
Step 2: How does Songboy work?
The Songboy cartridge has the processor chip on board and simply uses the power from the Gameboy batteries. You plug your headphones into the player and the music is stored on memory chips.
Step 3: Extra video features
Unlike most digital music players, Songboy will allow you to view graphics on the Gameboy’s screen. You are able to view things like song lyrics or pictures that go with the music you are listening to.
Step 4: Digital music for the masses
The Songboy player costs $80 and utilizes the same state of the art technology found in players costing 3 times as much. This low price point will be an asset to all those who may be discouraged from using digital music because of the high price of portable players. The unit is available at www.songboy.com.
