It’s easy to see how the Vestalife Ladybug Speaker dock for the iPod obtained its name. As you can see, the speakers fold out in a very aesthetically pleasing way, not unlike a real ladybug.
What you can’t see in the photo is the built-in three inch subwoofer that is installed on the other side. I found that it gave a lot better sound that most iPod docks, who usually opt for only two speakers and assume that they have done enough.
There are a lot of other great features to this device. For example, it has a USB connector for synchronizing with the computer, LED volume indicators, and it is both AC and battery powered.
Not only that, it can also charge your iPod. The Ladybug can support all kinds of iPod models including the iPod mini, iPod nano, as well as the iPod classic models.
Oh, and before I forget, the Vestalife Ladybug comes with a remote control and even a tote bag. It is no wonder that the Vestalife Ladybug Speaker Dock for the iPod won an Innovations Design and Engineering award at CES 2008 this year.
The Vestalife Ladybug should be available later this February. The red and silver editions are about $110 USD. There are also some Element Skateboard limited editions with cool patterns for about $125.
