It’s some sort of dance globe that responds to music input with lights or some other sort of action…

From the shaddows, it sort of looks like one of those little robot dogs. As the shadows on the “head” could be the little ears.

Due to the shape and size of the foot base, it is predictable it does not “walk”/“dance”

Re-entering more info to my reply above ^^^

I know what iZ is! Go to http://www.zizzle.com/ and View Source (Command-Option-U).

Here’s what it looks like:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd”>
<html >
<meta http-equiv=“Content-Type” c charset=iso-8859-1” />
<stylesheet” type=“text/css” />
<embed src=“iz.mp3” autostart=“true” loop=“true” c hidden=“true” id=“iz sounds”
name=“iz sounds” pluginspage=“http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/”>


First, you can listen to the music at http://www.zizzle.com/iz.mp3, but you alos con read this: id=“iz sounds”.
So I can say it’s something that makes noise (duh) but it must be something you can make noise WITH and but the noise ON your iPod… We’ll see…

the musix cool

Posted by sean c. on July 30, 2005 at 5:21 PM (CDT)


the shadows are impossible. you can see that there are multiple lights around it.

Posted by sean c. on July 30, 2005 at 9:02 PM (CDT)


From looking at the site and listening to the sounds, I’ll guess it’s an interactive electronic instrument, like a drum pad, that you can connect to an iPod, and make percussive noises while your music plays.

it looks like a little alien dock for your ipod that dances to your music

Posted by Kalika on July 31, 2005 at 12:26 PM (CDT)


Im guessing its similar to those flowers you used to be able to get that danced to music. Im guessing this is the same, but it plays the music.

Posted by Stoobie_Land on July 31, 2005 at 6:21 PM (CDT)


After looking at the shadow of the device it appears to be a docking device on top of a type of globe.  I would guess the globe contains lights or electrical pulses that would be synchronized to the music of the iPod.

It’s a wireless, bluetooth Triffid for the new millenia!

Posted by Keith on August 1, 2005 at 3:35 AM (CDT)


That’d be tribble, not triffid!

Posted by Kirk McElhearn on August 1, 2005 at 4:30 AM (CDT)


What I can see from the pics is that this thing has 3 white legs attached to a blue, translucid sphere. This sphere has then an extension on its upper part. This extension has what appears to be two “ears” and an antena. Because it has to do with the iPod then it’s got to do with music. So probable the “ears” are some sort of speakers, the blue sphere could be the base, and the antena could be used to remote control the ipod. Being it a “toy” then probably you can remote control the thing also. Syncronization with music might be included, though the “legs” don’t appear that suited to movement… probably also has some docking station for the ipod, but then also movement would be somewhat limited.

Bluetooth headphones

Posted by Brent on August 1, 2005 at 4:38 PM (CDT)


Whatever it is, it looks really cool!

Posted by Austin Van Der Veen on August 1, 2005 at 8:12 PM (CDT)


maybe its a device that shares music betwwen ipods, i mean you plug in two ipods and they syncronise and you can choose what music to exchange. Like they say it is gonna be different and that sounds quite different.

Posted by at least istill have my ladies *looks around* dang on August 2, 2005 at 4:48 AM (CDT)


i think its’s a docking station with a microphone antenna and it has speaker ears. it also has something that dances to the music on your ipod, like the antenna wiggles and the speaker ears move or something
