ICFF 2009: Straight Line Designs Inc. i-Log

The name is a bit un-"i"nspired, but Straight Line Designs Inc. presented one of the coolest home decor tech items at this year's ICFF show...the sort of home technology product which goes unnoticed as a mundane object until you casually walk on over to it and dock your iPod to set the mood...

The i-Log is constructed out of an alder branch, two speakers integrated into each end of the 16" long log with iPod docking up top (note the flat bottom design so your log/sound system doesn't roll away into the fireplace). An aspiring DIY home technologist could possibly rig something together similar if supplied with the proper woodworking tools to hollow out a piece and install a small sized speaker system and outgoing power source for the dock. But we're hoping to see Straight Line Designs' i-Log in boutiques in the near future because we know our home creation would look nowhere as nice.
