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.


Someday this will lead me down a path of Raspberry Pi zeros (or an open-source equivalent) and building my own OS. Someday!
