Christmas stocking filler gadgets: MP3 tri-pod

Gadgets, MP3 players

mp3tripod.jpgThis MP3 tri-pod (get the play on words) looks a little strange with an upside-down iPod attached to it via its headphone socket, but maybe quirky is the way to go with iPod / MP3 add-on gadgets.

Costing just £12.99, these 0.5W x 2 speakers (third third leg just for stability, I guess) need just 1 AAA battery, so they won’t take the lion’s share of the battery requirements on Christmas Day. Fair enough, they probably won’t sound amazing either, and I’m not convinced I’d want my iPod swinging around atop this gadget. But you never know. Probably works best with the smaller, lighter MP3 players.
