Simple. A bit retro. Something I could see a future Conan O'Brien or David Letterman-style talk show host having on their virtual desk as they interview OK Go about the video they just shot on the Moon. The Meteor Mic:
Made by the microphone-happy Samson, the Meteor Mic is powered by USB, requires no drivers and as technabob notes has a headphone input for monitoring your work. What can I say? I'm a sucker for new things that look old (have fun with that one in the comments).
Available in April for $US99. [technabob]
