Extremely niche electronic item I wish existed: media player in the form factor of an iPod nano, SD card storage, supports .flac, can play videos, and uses a transreflective LCD with front lighting so I can use it sans backlight, and if I do need a light it's not being projected directly into my eyes.

I would go for an e-ink display were I never including videos.

Oh, and some sort of podcast management integration to track episodes listened.


@hummingrain Not hard to find, minus the e-ink/transreflective display. Those just never really seem to catch on for products that have any significant user base (the only exception I can think of for this was the Pebble watch).

@hummingrain Or an e-reader, obviously.

Weirdly enough, the ancient Kindle I use has A) an SD card slot, B) an e-ink display, and C) can also play music (and it has a headphone port!).

@hummingrain Amazon is _still_ updating this device even though it's nearly a decade old, so if they built podcast capability into it (it's not impossible), "an old kindle" might actually be the device you're looking for. :P
