Are there any mechanisms for single select besides radio buttons and dropdown menus (combo boxes)?

Here's an image of the layout I'm designing: radio button selection

Users can only single select a product, and the feedback was that the radio button was boring. I want to see if there's any other single select mechanism I can use in this layout. Thanks!

    What problem are you trying to solve? Why don't the established controls that you mention fit your use case? – a CVn Oct 19 '15 at 19:57

    It heavily depends on the use case. What is the situation you want to use it for? Are we talking about a form? Or is it part of landing page content? What's the purpose? – Jan Oct 20 '15 at 10:05

How about using button groups?

Something like this: Button row

Depends on the platform.

Some platforms offer single selection list boxes. These look like multiple selection list boxes, except that when you click on an item, your previous selection is cleared cleared before your current selection is highlighted.

Here's a rough example.
