Dock the Planet: iPod Bed

Written by: Adam Christianson

Categories: Cool Stuff

Just to prove my point that iPods docks are everywhere, I am going to be trying to post stories on all the ways companies are integrating iPods into their products. From cars, to toilets, to clothing, iPod docks are everywhere. Todays dock is one from a New Zealand bed maker and is being billed as “The Worlds Most Comfortable iPod Dock”. This bed is made from New Zealand Rimu with aluminum detailing and is called the Pause. Made by Design Mobel, this bed is completely customizable and features traditional options like side lamps and storage trays, but what makes it totally unique is its ability to accommodate an universal iPod dock and BOSE speaker system. How’s that for true Mac geek comfort?

    Adam and other listeners…I was trying to access the Apple Store, but it says that it is down and will be back within the hour. Any idea if any/what updates might be coming?

    It’s a new iPod Nano (1GB). This is great for me because my 6GB iPod Mini is broken (the headphone jack won’t work) and I was looking for a new iPod anyways. I don’t need a lot of space because I pretty much only listen to podcasts and only keep about 10 songs on my iPod anyways. I’ve ordered one already…with my student discount it was only $129. Wow, that was a great price.

    TO stay on topic,
    the bed looks very interesting, I wonder if Apple would ever consider putting one of these beds in an Apple store? :D
    just dreaming

    Haha! I’ve gotta get one of those beds.

    Oh, man! I gotta have one of those beds! I’ve been thinking about something like that for a long time… you could set up your current bed in a similar fashion with off the shelf components, but it’s much sweeter when it all comes together in one package. Nice. I’m sure it costs and arm and a leg…

    I’ll have to cover this on my bed website! Not sure there’s much of a market for an iPod bed; I wonder how many were actually sold!? It’s true though, it seems that the iPod is everywhere right now.
