It's hard to convey just how goofy -- and weirdly delightful -- the Pringles Can Speaker is.
If you send in the original receipt from any four Super Stack cans of Pringles, you get a round speaker that snaps into the top of the empty can and plugs into any personal MP3 player, including iPods. Go to www.pringles.com to get details and a free-speaker-redemption form
The long, hollow can acts as an amplifier, adding a little depth to the sound.
The coolest things about this from my hour or so of playing with it?
1. It's a speaker that fits in a cup holder. Those of us who haven't got car stereos with iPod jacks can finally listen to Wilco on the way to work.
2. You get interesting reactions when you walk around waving a Pringles can that is playing music.
3. Finally, while the fidelity isn't real Bose, Pringles aren't real potato chips, either.
Playing music with the can beats having to eat the nasty things.
