Thanks to Gizmodo for the latest on Sony’s eco-friendly odo line, which includes:

Spin N’ Snap camera
Push POWER Play viewer
Crank N’ Capture video cams

The others work similarly: You turn the crank on the video camera, tug the cords on the headphones and roll the viewer along a table to charge it up.”

Reminds me of children’s toys – not in a bad way, of course.
