From time to time, you come across some strange combinations in tech. While not all of them are good, I can see how this one might work in some instances. If you use your iPod/iPhone as your primary music player, and you need some lighting effects for your next in-home rave, check out the Music Dock with Pulsing Light Bar from Sharper Image.
The black light bar spans about 4 feet, so the device isn’t small. You have the option of having it output a soft glow (for mood lighting in your bedroom), a continuous strobe effect (for your dance party or to mess you up while you stare at it), or a an effect that flashes the light based on the BPM of the songs you listen too. I don’t know what a pulsating black light effect looks like, though.
I don’t know much about the quality of the stereo speakers, which for me is the most important when buying something like this, but the funky lighting does make me curious. If you want to check it out, the Pulsing Light Bar dock is available from Sharper Image for $149.99(USD).
