Lego robot dock assimilates iPods

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on June 17th, 2009

Lego Robot dock assimilates iPodsYou ask us, this is a pretty cool use of Legos. And if companies don’t want to build robot iPod docks, then damnit, we will make our own. The creator actually built this bot-dock about 2 years ago, and only recently decided that it was time to share it with the internet.

The dock is a cannibalized iPod mini dock, and the robot/base is a mashup of several lego kits. (The AT-AT on the right claw gives it away. That, and the LEGOLAND sticker which came with Lego Soccer.) You can find more pics on flickr.

Atari 2600 iPod dock

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on June 16th, 2009

Atari 2600 iPod dockPut together two iconic classics and you can never go wrong. In this case it’s the iPod and the Atari 2600. The homemade dock puts the iPod connector where the cartridge used to go,(you’re probably using your cartridges as wallets anyway).

How could this be better? With the iPhone of course. With an LCD in the middle so you could play iPhone games properly with controllers. When iPod and Atari 2600′s meet, it’s like geek destiny. It’s a love that will endure forever.

Miffy bunny DAP with adorable dockMeet Miffy. This little bunny is all set to give Hello Kitty a run for her money. Apparently Miffy is from Dutch children’s books or something, and has now been made into an mp3 player. The grassy dock is what really sells you on the cuteness.

It’s made by MobiBLU. We don’t have a price or capacity yet, but it should be available this month. Choose this over the evil Hello Kitty, won’t you?

LG Home Theater Combo awaits your iPod LG is making it easy for iPod owners to get into home theater with the LG HB954TBW Blu-ray 5.1 Home Theater Combo that features a unique slide-out iPod dock. It will accept all iPods, but we aren’t sure if it spits iPhones out or not.

We just think that pop out iPod tray is cool and keeps it all tucked away when not in use. It was introduced at CES 2009 and the system is selling in Korea and includes 5.1 speakers, amplification and a Blu-ray player. It will cost about a grand, which isn’t bad at all.

Golden AT-AT Walker iPod dockSure, that AT-AT walker from the other day was awesome and all, but what if you like your AT-AT audio to be a bit more modern? And gilded? Then this one is likely to be more up your alley.

It’s basically an AT-AT toy with an electronic turntable glued to the side and spray painted gold. For some reason a golden Darth Vader and Yoda are riding up front, while the iPod sits in the butt area. Surely this is what happens when the Empire goes all gangsta on your ass. You get a slow drive-by walk-by with this beast poppin a cap in you.
