The mp3 speaker system PS4501 is unlike anything we've seen before, it looks kind of like a futuristic hand grenade.The PS4501 is billed by its manufacturer - London based audio company DBest - as "the Terminator of mini speakers." We're not exactly sure what that means but in functional terms it is a highly portable and capable speaker for your mp3 player. Though most people will probably use the PS4501 with an mp3 player or smartphone, the PS4501 also has the ability to to be its own mp3 player with a slot for an SD card.

The "Terminator" has yet to see an official release but it is rumored to be priced at $79.99. We will have to wait for its release to see how it's received by consumers but at the very least the "Terminator" is an interesting take on what exactly a speaker can be.
