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:
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!

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.
