I don’t really know why you would use a 130-pound log as an iPod speaker, but I guess the contrast that this creates between the high-tech looks of the iPod and the rough and rugged looks of the log are kind of cool.
What would have happened if you could have had an iPod, a laptop, or a cellphone all the way back in 1977? Designer Alex Varanese decided to go back in time with his modern gadgets to see what life might have been back some 30+ years ago, but with today’s tech.
Boy, I feel like it’s been a billion years since I even saw an 8-track tape, let alone listened to one. This kooky mod-job breathed new life into an old 8-track deck, letting it play tunes stored on an iPod.
You can either love it or hate it, but there’s no denying that the iPod changed the face of the music industry. Even though you’d rather not think too much about it, especially if you don’t own a Mac, Apple has made an incredible impact on music.
The UO DJ Mixer is a nice gift for newbie DJs. It lets you combine music from a pair of iPods or iPhones – and add effects like reverb, filter and flange. You can connect it to a sound system and share your mix with everyone, or use the bundled headphones if you’re not that confident with your skills yet.
I don’t know why there aren’t more cables that light up, but I have to say that these iPod/iPhone charging cables look pretty sweet.
This cable runs from your iPod or iPhone to your computer or power plug.
It’s kind of fitting that there is now a robot that will combine robotics with the iPod Touch. If you think about it, it actually makes sense. People have their iPods with them almost everywhere, and it’s a perfect device to have as the heart of a robot since it can access WiFi networks and the Internet.
Well, it looks like the iPod is now capable of remote controlling your car. Well not your car, but Dave Philipps did manage to control his classic Pontiac GTO with his iPod.
Dave’s totally tricked-out GTO has wireless controls for the ignition, doors, windows, radio, drop top, and even his trunk.
I’ve seen some strange looking cases and stands for media players in my days, but this one is definitely unique among the crowd.
Assuming you’re not an arachnophobe, you might enjoy one of these Spiderpodium stands for your media player or phone.
This incredible ammo box iPod dock was created by Thomas Spaans. He turned the old metal box into a high-end portable iPod amplifier.
It’s called the A-Box and it’s designed for docking an iPod or mp3 player, which can connect on the outside or the inside of this box.
Isn’t it funny how businesses seem to love and hate their customers at once? Take Apple. Their OS is extremely easy to use and is in my experience just a tad more dependable than Windows. Yet all that user-friendliness goes out the window when it comes to hardware, what with the limited (or missing) ports.
One of the things I really hate is when my iPod runs out of power. There’s nothing much you can do about it, if you haven’t prepared for this. However, if I had the choice of portable rechargers, I’d most definitely go for the MintyBoost.
I get the point of having gold or diamond-studded jewelry, or even watches. Those things have timeless appeal. But re-forming an iPod’s body out of solid 18ct rose gold and then adding platinum and diamonds to it is plain dumb.
Created by “Dr Grymm,” this steampunk contraption bears absolutely no resemblance to the iPod Nano that beats at its heart.
I’ll leave it to Dr Grymm himself to explain his creation:
“A custom mod of an Apple iPod Nano 1st Gen.
