“A British-based company is selling MP3 players which can be attached to an assault rifle. The ‘AK-MP3′ player is built into the ammunition clip of a Kalashnikov. It can be swapped with the real magazine carrying bullets and inserted into the weapon. … It comes with enough storage space to hold 9,000 songs. Former Russian rock star Andrey Koltakov, a partner in the dotcom company offering the AK-MP3 for sale, said: ‘This is our bit for world peace — hopefully, from now on many militants and terrorists will use their AK-47s to listen to music and audio books.’” (02/08/04)
This is a neat accesory for the worldly mercenary. Now someone needs to come up with a handy cigar holder to stick in the butt of the gun and I would be sorted (complete with cutter and lighter of course).
No doubt one of the most popular tracks on the AK-MP3 will be ‘Rock the Casbah’ by the Clash. Of course, I would prefer something along the lines of ‘Highway to Hell’ by AC/DC, ‘Wake up Dead’ by Megadeth or ‘Run to the Hills’ by Iron Maiden. What would be yours?
