It is nearly three decades late, but a new MP3 player from SanDisk puts a fresh spin on the 1979 hit disco song Shake Your Groove Thing. The Sansa Shaker is designed for children aged eight or older, who can impress their friends by shaking the player to jump to another song. For a more conventional way to strut their stuff, the device is also equipped with a simple controller band for changing tunes. It comes with a 512-megabyte SD flash memory card, which can hold up to 125 MP3 songs. Available in pink or blue, the Sansa Shaker costs HK$498.
