Mi-Sound iPod Case debuts
Ministry of Sound has unveiled its new Mi-Sound iPod Case, which serves to protect Apple's player against scratches and dings while acting as a portable speaker system. The device produces 0.6W from a unit in a separate compartment, which also contains a pouch for storing earbuds and other small objects. The flap for the iPod section folds over backwards to create a makeshift stand, and the Mi-Sound iPod case is powered by two AAA batteries. The case fits full-sized iPods as large as the 60GB fourth-generation models, according to Electronista. The Mi-Sound is shipping for $50 from the Ministry of Sound website.
