Speaker dock would make Dumbo proud

"LiveSpeakR" stereo for iPhone looks like elephant ears.


The search for a universal portable speaker design has been like hunting for UFOs or the Loch Ness Monster : Tons of sightings, but the real thing remains as elusive as ever. If anything, we should expect to see increasingly unusual attempts until the electronics industry figures it out, whether they're made for media players, mobile phones, or any other form of portable audio.

The latest: elephant ears. That, at least, is what the "LiveSpeakR" stereo dock looks like to us. The system wraps around the iPhone or iPod Touch, connected by USB port and accommodating both vertical and horizontal positioning for watching video, according to Gizmodo. Specs and pricing information aren't available, but with any luck it'll be released appropriately in time for Halloween.
