The iWoofer – an alien-shaped iPod speaker system with radio

MP3 players

Looking more like a lunar landing craft or an alien’s face than an iPod accessory, the iWoofer promises to blast out your tunes as well as charging your favourite portable player.

The iWoofer is compatible with all iPods post 2G, including the shuffle. It features a 2.1 channel speaker system with left and right stereo speakers and a "downfiring" subwoofer for extra bass. There’s also an FM radio with auto-scan tuning and preset station memory, while the iPod dock recharges your iPod and can also synch it to your PC or Mac (via USB). You can also use it with other MP3 players, home stereos or your computer via an audio-in cable (included).

The blue halo light can be switched on or off – but note it does little flash dance whenever you are tuning the radio. Operating off mains or 4x AA batteries and available in black or white, you can pick up an iWoofer for around £95.
