When Legos and iPods mate

Cultural icons combine forces in toy-slash-dock.

10x10

You know a toy has reached rarefied status when dishwashers are designed specifically to clean it, an honor that's been bestowed upon the almighty Lego. And now that the little plastic bricks have reached a point of ubiquity matched by the iPod, it seems only fitting that the two cultural icons combine forces.

South Korea's 10x10 is offering just that, in the form of what looks like a Lego that's really an iPod dock. It even has "some scrawny little speakers built in," according to Technabob--just don't expect concert-quality sound, especially for $16. We think Steve and Woz would approve.
