First Looks: i-Dog, Krusell, and mini Portfolios

Some of the newest accessory arrivals at iLounge include:

All iPods

Tiger Electronics/Sega i-Dog - Click Here for Details

Developed by Sega in Japan, this battery-powered dog is activated by touching his nose, and uses both motorized head movements and an array of colorful face-mounted lights to respond to whatever music your iPod is playing. You can tweak i-Dog’s tail or talk to him to make him bark, play songs of his own, and move. He also confuses real dogs.

 

 

iPod mini

Krusell Music Multidapt for iPod mini - Click Here for Details

This white leather and vinyl case for the iPod mini is compatible with Krusell’s large array of Multidapt clip, swivel, and vehicle mounting accessories (sold separately). A black version is also available.

 

 

 

Speck Portfolio Skin for iPod mini - Click Here for Details

This resized version of Speck’s 4G iPod case Portfolio Skin (iLounge rating: A-/B+/C) is ready for the iPod mini in the same two colors, each with four removable straps.

 

 

Full-Sized iPods

These white or black leather and vinyl cases for the iPod are compatible with Krusell’s large array of Multidapt clip, swivel, and vehicle mounting accessories (sold separately). Two sizes are available - one for thinner iPods, one for thicker ones.

I don’t know from idog, but that photo of it meeting the real life dog is one of the more adorable things I’ve seen this week.

What a cute dog :) (The real one) Isn’t that a Siberian Husky?

That’s my Siberian Husky, Sake. Shortly after the photo was taken, he attempted to eat i-Dog, as he does just about anything else that’s on the floor.

<3 Sake!

Hrmm, maybe that’s why I get devoured every time I visit, ‘cause I insist on sitting on the floor when I play with him. :\

ANOTHER iPod toy to confuse animals? That’s thoroughly odd.

And I thought my iBeam was effective!

Pictures of him wearing iPods (mini and shuffle) have seriously been attempted - unfortunately, he is unwilling to follow Apple’s surprisingly insightful directive: “Do not eat iPod shuffle.”

Yeah, Mine does that too. I once took my cell phone, made it test-ring, and stuck it under his harness. I have never seen him spin so fast. I don’t intend on doing that again, let alone letting him meet my iPod.

Sega iDog: Typical Japanese cutesy that abounds in the metropolitan areas of Japan.

Target sells the iDog for $29.99…. I found them in the toy department with all the other “virtual pets”.  Of course, I had to get it, and I must say it is quite cute and entertaining…. especially if you enjoy confusing the hell out of your “non-virtual” dogs

Jeremy,

Really enjoy your podcast. Informative and fun. Sake would make lunchmeat out of my two pekingese - altho he looks pretty gentle with that idog! Great picture…

FYI, I picked up an iDog at Target this weekend for about $30. It’s pretty cute and keeps my two-year-old daughter very entertained.
