Many of us use our trusty USB thumb drive to store our music, but how would you like to play your music from said drive? We bring you the Kinyo MB-200 Portable USB Flash Player, a rather long moniker for a small and handy speaker. That’s right: just plug your thumb drive into the MB-200’s USB port and press play. The speaker plays MP3, WAV and WMA formats, has an equalizer, and is compatible with iPods, MP3 or CD players and other music sources.

Unfortunately, there is no pricing info on the product website.
