Retro iPod Boombox – add some 80s-style bulk to your portable player

It might look like an authentic 80s-style boombox, but look closely and you’ll see that the iPod Boombox replaces the cassette with everyone’s favourite portable player.

Yes, housed within the spring-loaded door is an iPod dock, so you can charge and playback via the controls on the front of the Boombox. It also supports USB drives, SD/MMC cards and features an AM/FM radio with 20 presets, clock/alarm, 12w speakers, equaliser, connectivity to your TV, a remote control and lots more too numerous to list.

All of that retails for $220 (£110) from Urban Outfitters. I’ve not seen it at the UK branch as yet – but might be worth popping in to check.
