Wireless iPod iPhone Dock: Freeing Your Speakers of Wires

Usually most iPod and iPhone docks incorporate some form of attached speakers. They are either built into the dock or tethered to it with wires. American designer Victor Vetterlein decided that our iPod docks needed to have wireless speakers, speakers that could be detached from the dock and roam around our apartments.

The so-called Yo dock is designed for iPods and other MP3 players. It amplifies sound thanks to two wireless speakers. The system is also waterproof, so you'll have no qualms about moving the speakers to your bathroom while shaving or lounging in a bath. This also means that the Yo dock can work well outside. The speakers can run on batteries or be plugged in. You'll find rechargeable lithium-ion batteries inside the system and the speakers. They supply power to the system when it's unplugged from a wall socket. The speakers recharge when they are placed on the dock.

This is a cool concept that will help people cut down on the messy wires that we all have around our docks. The fact that you can simply take one of the speakers with you when you change rooms is also pretty nice. The dock is a unique looking thing. It looks like it comes from the future and has nice design elements integrated into it. It's a perfect mix of form and function. [via Designboom]
