Turn your iPod into an interactive game system

Turn your iPod into an interactive game system

Who hasn’t looked at their iPod and wished they could play games with it. Well, now you can. Not Super Mario or Metroid kind of games, mind you, but your iPod just got a little more fun. The iNo Interactive Game System for iPod turns the device into a game of music trivia that plays off your own music library.

Simply listen to the music, buzz your remote control when you think you know the answer and guess the name of the artist, the song or the album. Rack up the points and win. But wait…there may be one slight hitch here, before you rush out and spend $79.99 of your hard earned money. Doesn’t the iPod owner know his/her songs by heart? I would think they would be the winner every time. Oh well, for $80 you will just have to be content to sit out the game and let your friends play, wondering why the experience cost you $80.

Posted in Home,iPod Accessories,music,Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on December 5th, 2007

ITC One entertainment super-machineWe all want a single unit that has every form of entertainment in one box. SE2 Labs has an entertainment super-machine that tries to oblige, while looking like a mini-computer server. Design-wise, it’s looks are simply amazing. It’s called the ITC One and it boasts an Xbox 360, HD personal video recorder, surround-sound processor, ICEpower High End D-Class Amplifiers, 4.3-inch touchscreen, iPod dock, and remote control system all in a single unit.

The price for having so many goodies in one box? A whooping $19,900. Most people would prefer to get a rocking home theater system at that price. Or even buy a car. But if you like it’s design and the fact that it’s so compact, go for it.

The Thodio Box is an iPod Dock with class

The Thodio Box iPod Dock

The Thodio iBox is a very nice and somewhat retro looking iPod amplifier that is handcrafted from wood which is finished with quality high gloss lacquer. It will make your desk look much classier. The rechargeable battery provides 15 hours of juice, and the two speakers deliver 25 watts of power each.

It’s been a trend lately to recapture that look of old 1950′s Television sets with their woodgrain cabinets, and translate the look to these new devices. Anything looks at least a bit neater in wood, but with the Thodio, I think they got the design just right. Each case is handcrafted from 15mm of beech, oak, teak, zebrano or mahogany.

boynq iCube II adds color & style

boynq’s iCube II speaker and docking system

boynq’s iCube II speaker and docking system gives off some retro vibes, thanks to hot colors and nicely detailed design. The award winning company is known for such attention to detail. Even the packaging for the one above is eye catching, matching the product. It’s from boynq’s Pour Femme collection, which I believe translates to “for her”.

They do have a more manly option as well. The “Pour Homme” version of the iCube II. Truth is they are both eye candy, with subtle curves mixed with the right sized knobs. The large knob in the center even lights up. The connections are of course located in back. Line in, line out, iPod USB connection and the DC power in. It will allow you to charge and sync your iPod, connect the iPod shuffle and other audio devices and connect to your home stereo.

MiShare: iPod on iPod sharing

Posted in iPod,iPod Accessories by Conner Flynn on November 21st, 2007

iPod on iPod sharing

This could be a huge pain in the Apple for…well, Apple. The MiShare allows iPods to share information without a computer. Say your friend has pictures, playlists or mp3s on their iPod, that you would like to have on yours, but you don’t want to go through the trouble of getting out the laptop, charger cable, and iPod reverse transfer software.

MiShare makes it easier with direct iPod on iPod action. Just attach both iPods and press miShare’s button to start the transfer. It won’t disable iTunes DRM, but if you have regular MP3s you can now share away. The miShare is battery powered, and can be charged with an included AC adapter.

The Lars & Ivan Hybrid iPod dock

The Lars & Ivan Hybrid iPod Dock

Whoever Lars and Ivan are, one thing is clear. Well, two things. They know design and they sound like a swedish/Russian adventure movie duo. This PA-40Ti Hybrid iPod Dock is a true work of art, resembling something like a techno hammerhead shark or manta ray from some far off future. It looks as if it may even eat the iPod.(In a cool way) They even left the tubes exposed so you can see them.

They’ve skipped the built-in speakers entirely and instead focus on giving you 40 watts of stereo amplification that can power your speakers.

Tis the season for Santa iPod speakers

Santa iPod speakers

With the holiday season fast approaching, we see more and more products of a Christmas theme. Sometimes they are cool, sometimes they are silly. In this case, I suppose it will go with your Christmas decor as well as your reindeer sweater.

Listen to your favorite tunes as if Santa is singing directly to you.(Now that I think of it, if you are the type to stalk Santa like some celebrity, this will fuel your obsession to new heights.) And, it’s bound to look funny if you play heavy metal or some other completely un-seasonal music, all the while imagining these santas rocking out.

There’s a clear plastic screen protector which sits in a groove inside the case to keep it in place. A layer of “silicone protection” keeps your player relatively safe, with a “play-through design” so that functions like the Click Wheel can be interacted with.

Dock your iPod in Vestalife’s ladybug

Vestalife’s ladybug iPod dock

This is one of the neater iPod docks that I have seen. The Vestalife ladybug iPod dock is not just another boring place to park your iPod. It has a digital amplifier, built-in-subwoofer for extra bass, and a cool remote that resembles an iPod. It comes in a nice shiny red or gray finish and yes it resembles a ladybug. Especially when open. When closed it just plain looks cool. This is an iPod dock that’s all about style.

Of course, it also charges the iPod and can run on AC or battery. Another plus is the USB port that has been integrated to sync your iPod when it sits in the speaker.
