iVictrola iPhone and iPod Touch Amplifier
If you prefer new technology that looks much older than it actually is, then this device would be great to have lying around. It looks like more of an antique than an even remotely new gadget. Yet it will happily play your iPod all day long and without using a single battery. Not only that, but you won’t be forced to plug this into the wall either. Making this an extremely convenient gadget.
It seems almost impossible for there to be no batteries, nor the need for it to be plugged in. Not to mention that this doesn’t use a solar panel or anything else along those lines. Instead it uses an entirely acoustic amplification. The horn is made from metal, which actually maximizes that amplification. The base itself is hand-carved from walnut, that walnut is pulled from remnants of high-end furniture. Unfortunately, this device is fairly expensive, it’ll cost you $400.
