Gadgets Getting The Rugged Hummer Treatment

In the last forty-eight hours, I've had the pleasure (if that's what you want to call it) of coming across two gadgets that have been been inspired by the gas-guzzling, oversized Hummer truck. First I spotted the Hummer-shaped clock radio with CD player on 7 Gadgets. This player comes with a CD tray in the roof, an AM/FM tuner and matching yellow remote control. It's headlights even light up when you turn it on. I guess if your macho man can't afford the real deal, you can snag him one of these for $100 bucks from Amazon.

Then there is the Hummer HT1 cell phones posted on Boy Genius that are big, boxy and boast the traditional Hummer colors - khaki, green, camouflage, and yellow. Created by French design company ModeLabs, these phones come with all the standard bells and whistles of other cells like a 2 megapixel camera, FM radio, and microSD slot. The good news is they're only in Europe and come with a hefty price tag of $409. I'm hoping this will be the end of the "Hummer product line," but can't help but wonder if high gas prices have sparked a new counter-culture Hummer love trend.
