Dead iPod becomes a mouse

Dead iPod becomes a mouse
Dead iPod? Why not give it new life as a mouse by reincarnating it into an iMouse. This iPod had been run over by a car, so the modder took the Gentlemen we can rebuild it route, by doing just that.

It’s a fully-functioning mouse, with the buttons screen was too messed up so he just has paper in place of it. Imagine what else you could do here. Your mouse could pump out tunes or provide an extra screen for your computer if you kept the screen working.

Monopoly: Now on the iPod

Monopoly: Now on the iPod
It’s the one board game that everyone knows. Probably because we’re all greedy and love to buy property and collect money everytime someone lands on it. Well, if the board game version isn’t quite doing it for you anymore, an iPod version can now be downloaded from iTunes for $4.99.

How it plays out on such a small screen I have no idea. It was created by Electronic Arts, and uses the iPod’s click wheel to let you roll dice and buy, sell an trade properties, and build houses and hotels. It will run on iPod nano third-generation, iPod classic and fifth-generation iPods only.

Wood WWII Radio with iPod dock
Think you’ve seen it all in iPod docks? Think again. This thing packs a ton of WW2 nostalgia in a wood case, while also letting your iPod in on some 1940′s action. It blends the old with the new pretty nicely. It looks a bit more modern on top, while the bottom half resembles a period airplane cockpit.

It’s from the folks over at spiritofstlouis.co.uk, where you can find many such nostalgic radios with today’s technology inside. In addition to holding your iPod, this radio is a 3 Band radio with CD Player that can be powered by batteries or electric. Being a fairly unique item, it sells for £299.99.

Posted in iPod by Darrin Olson on February 19th, 2008

Apple releases 2GB iPod shuffleHold the phone. If you just saw our post about Apple dropping the price of the 1GB shuffle to $49 and were contemplating picking one up, you may want to consider forking out another $20 and getting double the storage. This morning Apple launched a brand new 2GB iPod shuffle for $69 which is still less than yesterday’s $79 price for the 1GB shuffle and can house closer to 500 songs on a tiny player that clips almost anywhere. Apple says the new 2GB shuffle will be available yet later this month, coming in all the same colors as the 1GB, including the RED version. (The lower priced 1GB is available now.)

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.

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!

Expect iPod Shuffle Speaker
Speakers for iPod Shuffles are harder to find, compared to speakers for iPods, Nano’s and even iPhones. Expect is here to help, with an update on the Cuby iPod Shuffle Dock. They have released some cool looking iPod shuffle speakers for the 2GB iPod Shuffle. They come in either pink or silver. Enjoy your tunes and charge all at once. It is powered via USB or batteries for a more mobile experience.

It’s made to fit the 2nd generation iPod Shuffle and is designed to be nice and compact. It’s kinda cute too. You just snap the Shuffle into the speaker dock and you’re all set. It will only cost you $27.

Griffin PowerDock is iPod hungry
Griffin has come up with a very handy PowerDock that will simplify the lives of those who have several iPods and iPhones in the house. (Or that crazy guy that has about 10 iPods and uses them all for some reason only he understands.) For now, it just charges the devices, but one can expect more functionality to be added down the road.

The Powerdock will be released in two models: a 4 slot version featured above for $70 in April, and a 2 slot model to come later for $50 in June.

Spykee Voice-Activated iPod Robots

Spykee Voice-Activated iPod Robots
I’m not going to talk about the fact that these robots have iPods in their crotch areas. I’m going to completely ignore the pink elephant in the room and I hope you will too, difficult as it may be.

Meccano is introducing 2 new robots, the Spykee Vox and the Spykee Miss, each targeted at different genders by the looks of them. I guess it has to be mentioned. Each robot has it’s own iPod dock, weirdly situated in their robot groin areas, and are compatible with other mp3 players as well.

Belkin Podcast Studio adds recording to ipods
You can create a podcast with a microphone and any recording medium, but if you’re really getting serious about podcasting, you’ll want something portable and battery powered that has good sound.

Belkin seems to have just the ticket with its upcoming Podcast Studio. The Podcast Studio uses an iPod as its processor and recording medium. The device does not include a mic, but the 1/4-inch and XLR inputs mean that the mic of your choice won’t be a problem. It has a recording meter, gain control, and even a compressor to ensure that your recordings won’t come out sounding distorted.

It claims to give you full protection and you can still share your music and videos without the need to remove the case or plug it into other speakers.

JBL iPod Alarm Clock with HD
I bring you more CES 2008 goodness. The On Time 200ID lets you wake up to your iPod, iPhone, radio, or a simple buzzer. If you want to connect other devices, it also has a 1/8th-inch line input. The one-piece speaker has a backlit LCD as well as touch-sensitive controls, and a backup battery to preserve your settings if power is interrupted.

The On Time 400IHD is pretty similar, but adds dual alarms and an HD Radio receiver for picking up HD stations. It also supports iTunes tagging; just press a button when you hear something you like, and when you sync your iPod in iTunes, it will let you find and buy it quickly.
