Bang & Olufsen announced its latest product this morning, an iPhone/iPad/iPod docking station called the BeoSound 8. According to B&O, it's perfect for the living room, patio, kitchen, or even "the Summer house." Coming with two large, round speakers that produce amazing sounds, you can prop the BeoSound 8 up on its included kickstand-like feet, or hang it on any flat surface for easy access. It looks cool, but can you guess the price?Take the Quiz
If you're constantly sharing the latest videos with your friends on your iPhone, iPod, or iPad while hanging at home, you're in luck: Optoma, maker of the pocket Pico projector for iPod or iPhone, has made a sound dock that includes a projector.
Shipping next month, the Neo-i packs all the great audio-enriching features of a typical iPod sound dock, like a two-speaker bass-enhancing system, but also adds a visual element with a projector that can turn any dark room into a screening of your Netflix Instant Queue.

Notables include the Keyboard ($129), Data Disk iPod Dock ($249), and Xbox 360 controller ($50), which all glow with blue light-up accents. All tech toys will be available this Fall through Amazon, Best Buy, and Gamestop. Check out a few of the items below!
Each features a sliding iPod dock and two USB ports for connecting your mouse or other device. Special dedicated media keys allow you to control your music or movies directly from the keyboard. There is also a built-in wrist rest. Plus, when it's docked, your iPod will charge and sync with your computer. I'm a fan of this keyboard — the design is great, and it keeps your device easily accessible while still connected.
The dock itself has a built-in alarm, so it works even if your iPhone isn't attached — but it has a time sync button to make sure both clocks display the proper time when your device is attached. You can even program the snooze button for up to 29 minutes between alarms. While the dock works best with the iPhone/iPod app, it will also work with your other iPods, too.
I noticed the Heartbeats earbuds in the video right away, but it wasn't until I took a closer look that I noticed the Phillipe Starck-designed iPod dock in the video's opening scene. There's even a close-up of Gaga herself turning it on, so I guess now we know how it works! I can't believe I missed this before, especially given how much I love talking about my favorite tech-loving superstar. Thanks, Baby Girl!

As much as I love the latest, greatest high-tech gadgets and accessories, I also have a soft spot for fun and unique products. Here are five of the quirkiest iPod docks I've seen lately. Whether you love them or think they're too over-the-top for your taste, you have to admit, they're definitely fun.
A few years ago, Vestalife debuted its Ladybug iPod speaker doc at Macworld, and we all kind of fell in love with its design and shape. This year at CES, Vestalife is back with its new Firefly iPod/iPhone dock, and it's just as stylish, but without all the patterned fuss.The Firefly ($130) comes in red, black, and silver, and has a soft-touch finish that you won't want to take your hands off of. Packed with two speakers and a rear subwoofer, you'll get some pretty great sounds out of this compact system. Perfect for your iPod, iPod Touch, or iPhone (all three generations), the Firefly took home this year's Innovation award for design and engineering at CES, so you know it's packing some heat under the hood. You can pick one up in the Apple store or at Vestalife's online store.
