iDesign SongView: iPod speakerdock for the myopic

It’s good to see a nice bit of press-photo staging, and I think the glasses are a neat touch with this iDesign SongView iPod speakerdock.  In case you can’t tell, the SongView’s claim to fame is the huge scrolling display along the base, meaning that no matter where your varifocals you’ll be able to tell exactly which Enya track is playing.

In fact the letters are 1.3-inches high, and since the speakerdock also functions as a clock-radio you can be woken by bright blue numerals burning out your retinas.  Stereo speakers aren’t likely to be the pinnacle of musical quality, but there’s at least an audio input for plugging in another audio source and an audio output for hooking up to a separate amp.

The iDesign SongView works with the iPod touch, iPod classic, iPod 5th generation, and 1st, 2nd, 3rd generation iPod nano, together with the iPhone (in airplane mode, anyway), and will recharge them as it plays.  It’s available now, priced at $99.99.
