Fireplace warms the cockles of your iPod

An MP3 hearth

Cal Spas

And you thought the iPod bed was weird. The collision of two consumer technology trends-- iPod docks and media furniture --may have seen the ultimate mashup in the iPod fireplace.

Yes, you heard it right. Cal Spas, the purveyor of Marin County-style hot tub culture products, has done it again in offering a musical hearth complete with built-in speakers and iPod docking station. It's not just for looks, either. BornRich reports that this "Home Resort" piece puts out a full 65,000 BTUs.

But, believe it or not, there's some stiff competition. Why confine yourself to audio entertainment, for example, when you can watch TV in your fireplace as well? And when you feel get bored of hanging around the house, you can warm up while enjoying the multimedia fireplace in your Hummer .
