Parrot iPod speakers

Parrot on Wednesday announced it will soon release its Zikmu wireless speakers for iPods and iPhones, which it has developed in conjunction with designer Philippe Starck. One of the 2.5-foot high freestanding columns has an iPod dock that will charge compatible Apple devices, including the original and iPhone 3G, and use it as the source for audio files. This main tower then sends the audio files to its near twin over Bluetooth, which is also used to play tracks from other compatible and paired cellphones or personal media players. A Wi-Fi connection allows the columns to play music from nearby computers connected to a wireless data network.

The Zikmu set uses NXT flat-panel speaker technology instead of traditional cone speakers for greater space efficiency. Available only in black, Parrot's Zikmu by Starck wireless speakers will be available this spring, priced at $1,500. [via Ecoustics]
