Says it’s a toy. I’m guessing it responds to music in some way. Fun, rather than functional.

they appear to be chairs to me, white plastic chairs.

Or maybe some sort of suction cup thingy.

it’s a cute dancing alien. you put your iPod in and it wiggles about to the music…like those accursed dancing Santas you see around Christmastime.

Is “it” a two-wheeled stand-up auto-balancing scooter controlled by leaning that will “change human transportation forever?”

Wait… wrong inventor.

I have no clue… yet.

My guess that it is a wireless speaker system for the ipod, or other music source as stated in the article, which synchronizes movement according to the flow and type of the music.
The movement happens with the legs of the product near the top.
The bottom part of the legs are created of what appears to be suction cups, which allow for easy placement on diffrent surfaces without having it fall over.
I am pretty sure there will also be synchronizing lights on the product it self, which also will adjust to the music being played.

The structure seems to be of some creature of some sort, because according to the shadow in the digitalized picture of it, it seems that it has two parts of some sort that hang out, might be where the sound comes out, or just for decoration(ex. eyes, lights..)

Appears to have some functionality like a Sony Aibo - a robotic pet/toy that responds to its surroundings, perhaps, in this case to the music. This may be very similar to audiocubes’ idog that is available in very limited quantities. Honestly, if this is something like an Aibo for my iPod, I would love it.

A walking talking iPod docking extreme sound buzzing musical entertainer.

Iggy :)

It’s a video iPod.

From the shadows produced by it, it looks like a round object with three protrusions at the top, supported by two struts. The struts appear to be able to rotate or move at the socket. It’s round pod-like body is a dark blue, shiny material, which I think may or may not be translucent.

My guess is that it’s a toy that moves to the beat of your iPod, like a visualizer but… physical. The iPod probably docks into the main body somewhere, and speaker projections are on the top.

it’s a stand/combo alarm clock.

Is it a fat Hawaiian musician? I’m pretty sure it is…

It’s a speaker you plug in via the headphone jack that undulates and gyrates to the music as it’s playing from your iPod.

Its a baby bouncer
