Lego + iPod = cool toy stands

Like toys? iLounge reader Richard L. has used Legos to create unique iPod stands that are described as “100% handmade and unique” with “designs [that] will not be used again.” For pictures, check out the link below. These unique Lego stands are now being auctioned on eBay.

I am cutting a dock out of plastic and lining the inside with velvet (have a bunch left over from past years) as not to scratch the iPod.  The plastic is clear and I will incorporate a couple of LED’s so when the iPod is docked, the LED’s will light up the dock the same color as the screen back light (or maybe the color of the buttons, not sure).

Ahh, I see Richard.  I haven’t played with LEGOs since I was 13, and those looked like another piece I remember using that was made of plastic.  Good idea tho!  Hope you sell a bunch!

It’s a shame no one is bidding on these. I guess, like me everyone took at look at these, thought they were really cool then had the sudden realization that they’ve got a ton of Lego in a box under the stairs and built their own.

Oh and just a personal side note: Referring to any volume of Lego as “Legos” should be a bi*ch slapable offense! But please don’t let this remark over run this thread.

I think your absolutely right pr10n. If only I was the only person in the world with lego.

Still, I made those stands at the beginning of the summer to avoid studying, and now Im off to uni realised I need beer money.

Guess it means I wont need to buy presents for my ipod loving friends :)

cheers for all the positive feedback though!

You should upload the stand pics to Lego’s website.

This also inspired me to build a lego stand for my iPod Mini:  http://www.flickr.com/photos/34257205@N00/tags/ipod/
