iPod case features built-in rotating speakers
You've seen a lot of iPod cases on these pages, but this upcoming one for the 5G iPod and iPod classic has a twist. Well, if we're being technical and it made sense to say so, the plastic case really has a rotate . . . -ing set of speakers, that is.
Attached to the back of the case are two 770mW speakers set into a rotating unit that flanks the iPod screen when exposed and can be "hidden" when not in use. The speakers run off their own 3.7V lithium polymer battery, so you don't have to worry about suffering the consequences of blaring Britney Spears at work when you hop onto the subway with a pair of headphones. I mean, there are consequences to listening to Britney, of course, but none of them are related to your iPod's battery power.
The rotating speaker case will sell for about $60 when it becomes available at the end of the month.
