The iPhone has been with us for 10 years. And over that decade, the market for iPhone accessories has become a full-fledged industry. But along with the useful accessories you'll find in Apple Stores (like the one shown here), there are plenty of off-the-wall iPhone add-ons, too.

Speaker docks were among the earliest accessories for the iPhone. The Bose SoundDock (2004) was originally designed for iPods but was later compatible with the iPhone, which had also had a 30-pin connector. Then things started to get weird...

Who can forget the early Bluetooth iMuffs headphones? The dongle plugged into iPods and iPhones (the original model didn't have active Bluetooth), and streamed wirelessly to the headphones.

These silly old-school handsets for your iPhone were kind of funny when they first came out several years ago. Not so much anymore.

Fluance's FiSDK500 iPhone/iPod speaker dock had a retro strange quality to it, but it did sound good. These days, you'll want the wireless Bluetooth version instead.

This may be arguably the most freaky iPhone accessory ever created. Check out the YouTube video, and read what we said about it back in 2010.

I actually played around with one of these cases and was marginally impressed. It's still available for the iPhone 5/5S and iPhone 6/6S from a company called TaskLab. Just don't bring it on to a plane, please.

Clip-A-Phone is smart phone hat mount. It's unclear how smart it is, but it is fairly inexpensive at $20.

Not brushing properly? Oral-B's latest smart brush, the Genius 9000 is here to teach you the key to sparkling gnashers.

It ropes in your smartphone to help as well -- stick your phone on your mirror, and the toothbrush's app uses the front facing camera to gauge where abouts in your mouth you're brushing, and for how long.

The Windshield Wiper was a USB-powered wiper for you iPhone. It's unclear what its purpose was.

The PopSlate 2 is an iPhone case that has a built-in battery and more importantly, an e-ink screen on the back that delivers vital tidbits of information (the company calls it a second screen for your iPhone). It's due to ship in the coming months.

The Moonlight Bedtime Story Projector blew through its funding goal on Kickstarter and will allegedly ship in April 2017 (proceed at your own risk). It allows you to project story reels on a wall or ceiling using your iPhone's LED. Kind of ingenious.

We wrote about this one last year. Needless to say, it's a little bulky. But that's the price you pay for awesome.
