MP3 Jukebox built into AK47 Ammunition Magazine
AudioBooksForFree.Com, the No1 UK online mp3 audio book publishers, has released a one-of-a-kind MP3 portable jukebox - built into the ammunition magazine of a Kalashnikov AK-47 Assault rifle. The "AK-MP3 Jukebox" comes with 20GB storage capable to hold up to 9000 songs or 3000 hours of mp3 audio books.
The manufacturers claim that the stainless steel body of the casing makes this new player uniquely suitable for the outdoors.
As the advert says, the 'player could be used on its own or it could be attached to the Kalashnikov machinegun instead of the ordinary magazine.'
Given that between 70 and 100 million Kalashnikov assault rifles have been produced throughout the world since the 1950s, it's an accessory bound to be in strong demand.
"This is our bit for World Peace," jokes one of the partners behind ABFF, ex-rock-star Andrey Koltakov (BONIFACIY).
"Hopefully, from now on many Militants and Terrorists will use their AK47s to listen to music and audio books- they need to chill out and take it easy."

Then came the internet and Mike managed internet projects for Australia's largest multimedia company, Telstra.com.au (Australia's largest Telco), Seek.com.au (Australia's largest employment site), top100.com.au, hitwise.com, and a dozen other internet start-ups before founding Gizmag in 2002.
