Kicker iKICK iK500 for iPod & iPhone

Posted in iPod Accessories by Conner Flynn on April 6th, 2008

Kicker iKICK iK500 for iPod & iPhone
KICKER is expanding it’s audio lineup with the neat looking iKICK iK500. The portable stereo system features a built-in dock for the iPod (Touch) & iPhone. According to the company, “The iKICK will transform the way people listen to their MP3 players”.

It’s got large “bumping” speakers, 5-inch woofers, and a 40-watt stereo amplifier, so the iKICK iK500 should be loud enough to let everyone know where the party’s at. You also get a credit card-sized infrared remote, so you can adjust things like the stereo system’s bass, treble, and auxiliary-in options, as well as the iPod menu.

Optimus Prime Transformers iPod dock

Optimus Prime Transformers iPod dock
This is what you get when you combine two things that we have enough of, Transformers and iPod docks. But it does have far more personality then your typcal iPod dock. It features built-in speakers and can actually transform to and from a robot.

The trailer section of Optimus Prime is the dock. Sorry, Shuffle owners, the iPod Shuffle is not compatible with this system. It stands 6″ tall in robot mode and will kick the ass of any other iPod dock you leave it alone with. I think my only complaint would be the total lack of color. The iPod Transformer Dock will cost you $149.95 and is available from Amazon.

Factron Quattro Aluminum Case for iPod Nano
For those of you looking for the perfect case to protect your new iPod Nano in style, this one stands out from the crowd. No artwork or obscenely bright colors here, but the new shape is really appealing.

These Factron Quattro Aluminum Jackets are from Mizumori Ado and it they look sturdy. In fact the looks are so nice in an industrial sort of way, I almost want to drop the device on purpose just to see what happens. Unfortunately, these will be sold only in Japan and in extremely limited quantities.

iPod sound bubbler turns sound into bubbles

iPod sound bubbler
Every now and then I swear I can spot which gadgets potheads are designing. Like this iPod sound bubbler. It looks alot like a bong. In fact, if Cheech and Chong were still making movies, this would probably be featured in some weird scene where their iPod got stuck to their bong, while they trip out about the bubbles matching the rhythm of the music. “Dude, look!”

It’s from Spi and features a column of bubbles that flow out according to the rhythm of the current track being played. Like a Lava lamp, you also get red, yellow and blue lights changing continuously to help create the mood. It works with more then just the iPod, being compatible with just about any other device with a 3.5mm audio output, like CD players and portable media players.

Kenwood AS-IP300 iPod dock

Kenwood AS-IP300
Kenwood’s AS-IP300 iPod dock looks like it just came from Area 51, which is cool. Unfortunately, it also looks like it could be mounted on the wall and used as a clothes hanger. You can get a black version if you really want it to look like the Stealth bomber.

No word yet on when these will be in the states. The price is about $140. Dimensions are: 380x157x221mm at 1 kg (1.2) for this iPod dock and it comes equipped with a couple 1.9W speakers. I’m a little unsure about this one. On one hand, it’s cool, on the other it looks like it might have been put here to brainwash me and then fly up in the sky to meet it’s cohorts. Is that odd?

iPod electric guitar: play along with your favorites

iPod electric guitar
When Guitar Hero and Rockband aren’t enough to satisfy your poser urges to emulate rock stars, this guitar will fill some sort of void in your life. It’s a 3/4-scale electric guitar that connects to your iPod or other MP3 players, allowing you to play along to the music thanks to the built-in 4-inch amplifier/speaker.

The guitar has a solid basswood body, maple neck, and rosewood fingerboard. A truss rod allows you to adjust string action for easier chording. It also has precision machine heads and a single-coil pickup, volume control knob, and a standard 1/4″ output so it can be plugged into a standard amplifier if you like. For $199.95 you get a guitar strap, digital tuner, cables, plectrum, and carrying case. Includes a 9-volt battery that supposedly gives you six hours of operation.

Grace Digital Lars & Ivan Hybrid PA-40TiA company going by the name of Grace Digital recently announced some new iPod accessories being hawked under its Lars & Ivan brand. The one catching our eye the most is the Hybrid PA-40Ti, priced at around $450.

The Grace Digital Lars & Ivan Hybrid PA-40Ti is described by its maker as a “high performance” integrated iPod tube amplifier. It can serve as either a complete iPod speaker system or as standalone speakers attached to another audio system. A built-in iPod dock connects Apple’s player and lets you play music, transfer data, charge the iPod and output video.

Disguise your iPod as a vintage Walkman

iPod Walkman
iPods are one of the most common devices that thieves will steal easily if given half a chance. Therefore, it’s better to have it disguised as something else. And while you might look a little odd listening to your vintage 80′s walkman, no one will ever suspect that there’s a valuable iPod inside.

This clever iPod concealer has authentic looks right down to a see-through clear plastic front. Unfortunately you can’t get one of these for your own right now. This one the owner made himself. Ever think you would see an iPod in an old Walkman? I know I never thought I’d live to see the day. He gets points for originality. Who knows, this sort of thing may just revive that old 80′s walkman style, that seemed so cool back then.

Polaroid DPJ takes your iPod movies to the next levelPolaroid’s DPJ-08580B is only one of a hundred gadgets that go with your iPod, but it manages to stand out admirably. The device is basically a portable DVD player with an embedded iPod dock, which will allow you to view videos stored on your iPod in a larger format. Not huge mind you, but larger. The screen is 8.5 inches.

It retails for just 28,000 yen, which is about $252, but if you absolutely have to buy an accessory for your iPod, you will probably get more enjoyment out of this one then most of the other gadgets out there.

500XL iPod Speakers are huge

500XL iPod Speakers
Finally some iPod earphones that Prince Charles or a giant can use. This new version is 500 times the size of the originals. You should probably use these as speakers for your PC or mp3 player, and not put one on each side of your head.

The 500XL speakers include a built in amp and can also be powered by batteries, USB or DC. No word on pricing or availability just yet though, so don’t alert your big-eared friends just yet. You have to love the clamshell packaging on these.

iPod Hoodie: a sweatshirt for your gadget

iPod Hoodie
This is for anyone who thinks that celebrities dressing up tiny dogs is oh so cute. Well, that trend may be on it’s way out, so why not dress up your iPod? Maybe it needs a wardrobe makeover. If you’re bored with your current gadget skins the iPod Hoodie is definitely different. If you don’t have a tiny animal to dress, this would be the way to go.

It looks just like the hoodies you wear, but more ridiculous as it is on a small iPod. They’re even made out of real sweat shirt material. The iHoodies come in shapes compatible with the iPod Touch, Nano, Video Nano and iPod mini, and cost between £9.99 and £10.99 or about $20. Think of all the fun you can have dressing your various devices and having lovely little tea parties. Why, the hoodie is a perfect way to recreate Eminem in the “8 Mile” movie.

iCarta iPod dock & toilet roll dispenser

iPod dock & toilet roll dispenserWe’re used to seeing our share of iPod docks, but this borders on the ridiculous. Okay, it crosses the border screaming and begging not to be deported. I think it goes without saying that this device is designed to charge your iPod while you discharge your own product, commonly known as an iLog.

It does more then charge your iPod in an inappropriate location, though. It features two USB ports and not only dispenses precious paper, but while doing so, will soothe you with music through four high-performance, moisture-resistant speakers. “Easy-to-use controls allow for one-handed navigation.” One word…Ewww!
