The Buddha Machine is a little plastic box that plays music. Forget about all your pods and players, this is the best and cheapest pre-loaded Ipod you'll ever be able to buy. Produced in China and only available on the internet, this little gem of a design has attracted fans such as the electronic pioneer musician Brian Eno, who apparently has lots of them.

The makers, FM3, have constructed nine drones varying from two seconds to 42 seconds which repeat endlessly in the listener's ear until the "track" is switched to the next drone. They come in different colours, so you never know which one you'll get through the post. It's a must design to have to help you relax, work, and write blogs!
