The WALdok is a perfect example of form meets function. It’s a portable speaker system designed specifically for the iPod Nano that plugs into any US wall outlet and provides what is supposedly an ample amount of sound despite the rather small form factor.
Inside the device is a 40mm driver, that is complemented by a bass chamber, and hopefully produces a wide enough spectrum of sound it doesn’t sound like your listening through a tin can.
The folks behind the device drew from wall plug-in nightlights and scented oil warming devices. The best part is that it’s great for bathrooms and kitchens since there are no cords to get in your way or fall into the sink and short-out your home’s sockets. It also doesn’t hurt that the WALdok has been designed with Apple fans in mind, though we’re digging the translucent casing over the white version.
But before you get too excited, the company is still looking for funding for their project on Kickstarter. So far they’ve raised $2,563 and are looking for another $27,000 to get their project underway.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
