Spark’s egg-shaped VTube media player won’t fit neatly in your AV rack


Ugh, this is the ugliest Extender-device I’ve ever seen, so maybe it’s not a terrible thing that we’ll probably never see it. But, still interesting to see more manufacturers trying to make their products stand out–which this one sure does!



The unit packs HDMI / component / composite video outputs, an Ethernet jack and a Toslink optical audio output, and those who dig internal storage can slap a 2.5-inch HDD within to keep those old Office clips handy. Predictably, it also supports pretty much every file format known to man, and the built-in USB port ensures that you can add external storage if need be. It’ll only run you around $130, but the chances of seeing this on US soil are slim.
