International Dance Machine is a portable DJ that with doppler radar, ultrasonic proximity sensors and a freakin’ disco ball; while the trailer’s music is meh, the concept is “sound.”
Know anyone in a garage band? We recommend The Indie Band Survival Guide; it’s got great tips on everything from marketing to merch. The website is an awesome resource, too.
Known for their gamer friendly hardware, SteelSeries’ Siberia Headset is a solid, goodlooking headphone; we like the mic, which can be detached if you just want to listen to tunes.
Tired of stock Guitar Hero and Rock Band controllers? Peak’s Starpex Guitars mimic the real thing; they’re heavier, feature muted strum buttons and get three awesome color schemes.
The BoomCooler is one of the stranger mashups we’ve seen, with Sony’s Xplod audio system (600-W amp!) built into its cover. Oh yeah, it’ll store food too, but it’s gotta be dry.
Korg’s DS-10 transforms your Nintendo DS into a virtual MS-10 synthesizer, with a six track / 16-step sequencer, as well as note entry via touch screen, keyboard or matrix screen.
Robert Hodgin’s Solar video has already made several rounds on the interwebs, but it’s so amazing we’ll share it again. It’s cued to Goldfrapp’s “Lovely Head” and made with Processing.
Old school/80s fanatics will love Lasonic’s iPod boombox, usurping the cassette player with an iPod dock. It also has an SD/MMC card reader, AV output and runs on 10 D-sized batteries.
Griffin’s AirCurve is essentially a transparent display stand with a coiled waveguide within that acts as an amplifier: in short, this polycarbonate speaker doesn’t need power to operate.
Like Ruben’s Tube, these musical Tesla coils by Steve Ward and Jeff Larson are designed to be seen and heard. Above: listen to them play the Zelda theme song. Even crazier: Lightsabers.
Jonas Damon’s 2B Radio is a retro minimalist’s dream come true, with a matte black case and three vacuum tubes in place of transistors. It’ll hook up to your iPod or MP3 player, too.
Bang & Olufsen’s saucer-shaped speakers (link: BeoLab 5) are now available in the Aston Martin DBS and DB9; each car will have two of these tweeters which retract when not in use.
Awesomest. Keyboard. Ever. NeKo’s LUX Keyboard is dipped in 24kt gold, packs 4GB RAM, a 4 Terabyte hard drive, Blu-Ray burner, 10 audio ins/outs and 100,000 preset sounds.
JVC’s HXD77J isn’t for the faint of heart–this monstrous boombox features separate amps for the woofers, tweeters and subs, all of it blasting 540 watts to its 4-way speakers.
The Onkyo TX-NR906 is a top of the line receiver (with the price to match): this 7.1 channel receiver has 1080p video upscaling, 145 watts per channel and can stream audio.
You don’t have to be a greying rocker to appreciate these limited edition Metallica headphones, made in collaboration with Skull Candy. Choose from two designs: Hesh or Lowrider.
Shakerboys is a hypnotic video by West London based artists Viewmanoid that makes you want to take the day off and chill; it’d be perfect as an iTunes Visualizer plugin.
Boynq’s Wake-Up iPod Dock is uber-stylish, with three backlit LCDs for time, radio station and input channels. It also sports 3″ speakers and an equally stylish remote control.
Altec Lansing’s iPod-friendly inMotion Speakers both look and sound great: the moondance GLOW is a dual-alarm clock radio, while inMotion MAX delivers crisp, full-spectrum sound.
Ion Audio’s iCue Mixer is a compact, entry level system for those wanting to mix MP3s from their computer. We do recommend a 3.5mm Y-splitter for your headphones, however.
Apple’s iPod Touch gets a mild makeover, with a thinner, more contoured design and an external volume control. It will also get a built-in speaker and come standard with Nike + iPod.
Apple’s new Ipod Nano returns to its candybar roots and is the thinnest iPod ever. Made with curved aluminum, you can shake it to shuffle; it will come in a rainbow of nine colors.
We featured Owerko’s retro-nostalgic Boombox Project previously; he’s teamed up with Gelaskins to produce a custom Boombox skin, available for most iPods and MacBooks.
Kevin Rose confirms it: iTunes 8.0 will indeed by including Flight 404’s gorgeous Magnetosphere visualizer plugin. If you haven’t seen it before, you owe it to yourself to click above.
Microsoft’s Zune mp3 player now has a glossy, 120GB version out on Amazon — also, check out the new blue 8GB version, which comes with wireless buying and games.
If you’re gonna splurge on an axe, we suggest this Harley Davidson Fender Stratocaster Guitar; it and two of its brothers are being auctioned off, with proceeds going to the MDA.
