Auris' Skye wireless 30-pin audio dock adapter with AirPlay now shipping
Auris has announced that its wireless 30-pin audio dock adapter with AirPlay, Skye, is now available for shipping. Debuting initially as a Kickstarter fundraiser, the audio dock adapter aims to keep older audio technology relevant for longer, reducing the need to replace it for being out of date. Skye's wireless technology allows users to stream and control music from an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Android device, Windows Phone or a desktop running iTunes within a Wi-Fi network with AirPlay and DLNA support.
The adapter fits onto any 30-pin docking stations, and allows wireless control of the streamed music through the Skye control app. Skye is not limited to a certain wireless range in the same way that a device utilizing Bluetooth is - transmission is possible through walls and furniture as well. Available in white and black color options, the Skye wireless 30-pin audio dock adapter with AirPlay is priced at $80.
