Gibson brand company Neat Microphones launched their second line of personal mics, that feature high quality recording, with a unique design. Their first line of microphones, the Bee series, was a bit odd looking. The new Widget line is still interesting, featuring a retro futuristic design that looks like something you would find in the Fallout games.

The integrated pop shield and shock mount make the widget mics particularly tempting as you don't need a host of other equipment added to your setup.

Unfortunately, with everything built in, the mic is a bit larger than most comparable microphones such as the Yeti.
