Royal treatment for the iPod Touch

Put it on a pedestal--literally.


What better way to put your iPod Touch on a pedestal than an actual pedestal?

That's what Bird-Electron has created with its EZ-18 speaker stand made of black steel, which gives it kind of a futuristic Vader-esque look. The stand includes a built-in 60mm speaker, though sound quality will undoubtedly be sacrificed for the sake of wireless portability.

In fact, it may not look very portable, but that may be a tradeoff because it's designed to be "durable and hard to tip over." And never fear: Uncrate says the stand has silicone padding to keep its Royal Highness from being scratched.
